Today at the zoo

The Oregon Zoo is temporarily closed to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Learn more.

Support the zoo

As a nonprofit organization, the zoo relies on ticket sales, memberships and donations to operate — even when we're closed to visitors. For anyone looking to help, the biggest way to make a difference right now is to become a member, renew your membership or make a donation. Your support now is more important than ever.
