Now more than ever, the Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute needs your support! Every day, our experts work to safeguard the health and wellness of our living collections here in Washington, D.C., through world-class care, nutrition and enrichment. And that is only half the story — the Zoo's scientists, veterinarians and wildlife biologists are hard at work saving species around the globe. While here at home, they are distance-educating students of all ages about the importance of conservation and the wonders of wildlife.

Unfortunately, we’ve had to close again to the public, so we’re not receiving the revenue we depend on to pay for many of our expenses. But even during this time when our gates are closed, we are still here, working as always to save species. We hope you will join us in this important work.

Help the Smithsonian’s National Zoo with a special tax-deductible gift today.
