Last call to get your name on the wall!

As a valuable part of the Birmingham Zoo family, you’re invited to participate in a rare opportunity.  As part of the Renew the Zoo capital campaign, we’re building an exciting new Front Entrance, Asian Passage Habitat and Welcome Plaza, which will include a striking Donor Recognition Wall.  We want to include your name on the wall!

Completion of the entrance and plaza is expected in early 2019.  The one-acre gathering plaza will serve as a multi-purpose space to allow for enhanced education programs and special events.  The plaza’s Renew the Zoo Donor Recognition Wall will be over 40 feet long and beautifully etched, honoring friends like you who contribute $1,000 or more to the campaign (payable over three years). In order to meet construction deadlines, we need your reply no later than Friday, July 16, 2018.

If you have questions, simply contact Kristin Martin, Development Director, at kmartin@birminghamzoo.com or (205) 909-4560.  We hope you’ll take this opportunity to become a permanent part of the Birmingham Zoo’s future.


Why join the Tiger Society?

You are invited to become wildly connected to the Birmingham Zoo by joining this group of generous and compassionate individuals. You will ensure the future of endangered animals and further the Zoo’s mission to promote education, conservation, research and community involvement. Your tax-deductible gift to the Tiger Society is the perfect way to show your support and enjoy special privileges.

The Zoo is expanding. Phase I, Henley Park event lawn, is complete. Soon, work will begin on Phase II, which includes building a new entrance and plaza. In Phase III will create new habitats for endangered Asian species, such as the Malayan tiger, red panda, Komodo dragon and Sumatran orangutans. Your gift to the Tiger Society supports the new Asian Passage exhibit and provides you with a Zoo membership. No matter the size of your gift, you are an integral part of our Birmingham Zoo family. We appreciate your generosity.
