Cougar Crossing  

This is Your Opportunity to Invest in Cougar Crossing!

Your Birmingham Zoo is expanding its footprint with the addition of Cougar Crossing, a new area with a focus on bobcats and cougars. Not only will guests learn more about our local wildlife, but also about the importance of conserving Alabama’s native species.

When you give to Cougar Crossing, you’ll provide a home to a new cougar, America’s largest native cat, and Bob, our resident bobcat.

Be a part of your Zoo’s history for $28 per month payable over three years ($1,000 pledge) to have your name or a loved one on a 4” personalized paw print at the habitat!   Make your gift or pledge by June 15.  Click the button for additional paw print sizes and payment options.
