Now in it’s 39th year, Friends of the Louisville Zoo are proud to present the Zoo’s largest fundraiser, Zoofari!   Funds raised during Zoofari! support key projects and initiatives of the Louisville Zoo including capital improvements of animal exhibits, enhancements to guest experience, and special investments to support sustainable programs and activities.  These projects help the Zoo continue it’s mission of “better the bond between people and our planet”.

Over the years, funds from Zoofari have directly benefited renovations to exhibit areas such as the expanded elephant exhibit; the creation of several new exhibits such as a Lorikeet Landing, Glacier Run, Colobus Crossing, Snow Leopard Pass and the Little Penguin Conservation Center; and the award-winning School at the Zoo program. Most recently, funds raised at Zoofari! supported the addition of automatic doors on the HerpAquarium and the construction of a new Lakeside bridge. The Friends of the Louisville Zoo are dedicated to the preserving the legacy of the Zoo and it’s continued work to make the community a place where people from all walks of life can relax, learn, and reconnect with nature.

I can’t support zoofari but want to donate!
