Closure Notice for Zoo Guardians Mobile Game

Zoo Guardians opened its mobile gates more than two years ago connecting players to wildlife and teaching what it takes to care for zoo animals from real-life conservation heroes. On Dec. 31, 2022 our mobile app will close. The game has been removed from app stores and current players can no longer purchase ZooPasses and gems. However, JumpStart Games will continue to support current users until 9 p.m. EST/6 p.m. PST on Dec. 31, 2022.

We hope your interest for building your own zoo and saving wildlife in-game will inspire you to visit your local zoo or us in Washington, D.C. Conservation starts when people make a choice to act. Please follow us on FacebookInstagram and Twitter to learn more about animals and our team working to care for, study and save species.

Thank you for joining the league of Zoo Guardians around the world.
