What We Do

We strive to provide a world-class wildlife experience that engages, educates and inspires people to conserve and protect our natural world.

During these challenging times, our dedicated animal-care staff continues to provide the same world-class, expert care for our animals and their habitats. Whether your interest is in wildlife, conservation or education your generous support today will have a significant impact on Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium now, and for future generations.

Looking for more ways to help? We’ve got you covered! Practice social distancing and brighten the day of one of our animals from the comfort of your couch with the purchase of an enrichment item from the Zoo’s Amazon wish list. Whether it’s a kong for an aardvark or an igloo for an otter, you’ll be doing your part to help enrich the lives of one of the 36,000 animals that call Omaha’s Zoo home. Don’t want to play favorites? Make a general gift and help support all of Zoo operations!
