The COVID-19 pandemic has created countless challenges. In addition to an impact on the Ross Park Zoo regular season, the pandemic has played a role in limiting their mission of education in the community. Due to COVID-19, the zoo is not able to operate education programs like Winter Zoo School, Wild Encounters, ZooMobile outreach, and traditional winter events such as Courtship Tails. These add up to a major loss of revenue during the offseason. Please consider a donation to the zoo’s COVID Relief Fund at, where your contribution will go directly towards providing food, care, and supplies for over 175 animals at the Ross Park Zoo.

Thank you.
