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. When this health crisis has passed, and the Zoo gates open, just imagine the sight of all the healthy, happy, well-cared-for wild creatures that will be there to greet you.

MEMBERSHIP SUPPORTS THE MISSION And we need you. Now more than ever. Patron members have a substantial impact and make the mission happen. Your support advances the Zoo’s efforts and also gives you access to the Zoo that goes beyond regular household memberships. The benefits of being a patron member have never been better – because your support has never been more critical. Visit to support the Zoo today.

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!
