Your Membership Matters

Special Announcement for Birmingham Zoo Members

Whether you’re a longtime member or brand new to the Birmingham Zoo family, we are grateful for you. Your continued support through membership purchases and renewals help fund animal care, animal enrichment, food, medical supplies, and so much more for our animal family.

Although the Zoo is temporarily closed to the public, our staff continues to provide excellent care for the animals you’ve come to know and love. We remain committed to wildlife and to you, our family. We want to honor your investment of membership and guarantee you receive your full year of benefits. We will extend the expiration date of all current memberships by the amount of time we remain closed to the public. All new and renewing memberships will include a full year of benefits from the date the Zoo reopens.

There is no action required on your part to accomplish this extension. New membership cards will not be needed unless you have recently renewed or are a new member. We will automatically update memberships so that your current member card will continue to be active through the extension period. 

To contact our Membership Team, please email us at
