Sponsor an Animal
Our animal sponsorship program inspires people to understand, respect and conserve the natural world through an engaging and fun educational experience. The core benefits of animal sponsorship are a sponsorship certificate personalized with the name you indicate, and either an animal trading card for your sponsored animal OR an animal photo and fact sheet (depending on availability).
If you choose one of our currently featured animals, you will also receive either a plush animal or a book related to your chosen animal (if you do not indicate your preference, we will send the plush). Please refer back to http://www.mnzoo.org/donate/donate_animalSponsorship.asp to see our current promotions and the details on each plush and book.
For a $100 donation, you will also receive the children's book Animal Homes by Judy Allen and Simon Mendez. For a $250 donation, you will also be invited to chat with a Zookeeper.
The $75 group/classroom animal sponsorship includes a sponsorship certificate, the children's book Homes That They Share by Dawn Tanner, Nancy Leasman, and Jim Perry, fact sheets or trading cards for up to 50 group members, and Minnesota Zoo pencils for up to 50 group members.

To increase your support of the Zoo's animals, ask your company if it will match your donation.
