Who are The friends of the Zoo?


We are a group of friends who love nature with a burning desire to help our animal and plant life. We enjoy nature and would like to leave it in a better state than we found it for future generations.


By becoming a Friend, you help the National Zoological Gardens with the important task of conserving wildlife by breeding species which are endangered or extinct, in their natural environment.


This year marks an important milestone for the Zoo, as it is turning 120 years old! The National Zoological Gardens really stands out from the rest, as you would never imagine being in the middle
of the city and be surrounded with wildlife from all parts of the world. Being a Friend you have the privilege to work in this unique setting and surround yourself with the love for wildlife.


Join our organization to make our world a better place.

We have the new Pebble Payment System in place which takes
the hassle out of carrying cash on you. Pay on the spot!
