How the zoo helps

The Conservation Education Department of the Racine Zoo is dedicated to promoting awareness of conservation issues through engaging, educational, and entertaining zoo experiences. The Racine Zoo is involved in many local, national, and international conservation initiatives including the ornate box turtle head-start program, Frog Watch USA, Seafood Watch Program, and more.

Giving to the Racine Zoo

The Racine Zoo’s Animal Care Department provides essential daily and veterinary care to over 300 animals and 75 different species that call the Racine Zoo home. Just like you, our animals need to eat and have dentist visits! Each animal requires unique care and enrichment as well as proactive care to live long, healthy lives. As a nonprofit, the price tag is steep for the special care our animals require. They are looking to raise much-needed funds.

Donors play a crucial role to keep the community’s 98-year-old zoo running. Through the generous support of the community, the zoo can continue to create new experiences and memories for guests of all ages for years to come. A donation of any size makes a difference.
