Get Involved



We are all in this together. Your Birmingham Zoo has temporarily closed to help stop the spread of COVID-19. We value the safety of our community and our dedicated Animal Care Professionals, who are hard at work, ensuring our animals receive the nutrition, veterinary care, and enrichment they deserve.

The daily cost to feed our animals is $1,000 but it costs the Zoo $30,000 per day to operate and provide animal care. Open or closed, your Birmingham Zoo has a commitment to providing vital care for endangered species.

If you are able, please give to your Birmingham Zoo’s Emergency Animal Fund. Consider a one-time contribution or a recurring monthly donation, but know that a gift of any size will make a difference. Thank you for supporting your Zoo and the animals we care for in this unprecedented time!
