Member News and Information

Member News

Friends of the National Zoo has updated its online experience for members and customers. If you're a FONZ member or have made a transaction with FONZ in the past, you already have an account — you just need to activate it.
We HERD you loud and clear! You want additional opportunities for exclusive access to the Zoo animals you love. That’s why we are excited to announce our new benefit just for FONZ members: the Early Bird Member Access series. 
On Saturday morning, about 3,000 FONZ members gathered at the panda house for a special opportunity to say Bye Bye Bao Bao, a little more than a week before she heads to her new home in China.
