Choose the Zoo 365

Support the Zoo every day of the year!

You can CHOOSE THE ZOO 365 by joining our monthly giving program, which will ensure each and every visitor to the Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens will get to explore, learn, and be inspired to protect wildlife & wild places.

As a non-profit organization, we rely on community support to continue our mission! There are few other places where your investment can touch the lives of so many people, as well as wildlife around the globe that depend on us for their conservation.

When you CHOOSE THE ZOO 365, you are making a daily investment to ensure that the Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens is a place where you and your family can marvel at seeing animals up close, forge connections, and create lasting memories for generations to come.


How can I CHOOSE THE ZOO 365?

You can make a monthly gift directly through our website!



One-time Financial Gift:

Donors play a crucial role in the success of the Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens’ education and animal care programs, and conservation initiatives. Making a gift to support the Zoo has never been so easy.


Support the Orianne Center for Indigo Conservation (OCIC):

Your donation to the OCIC will directly support the Zoo’s conservation efforts for the threatened Eastern indigo snake!



If you are planning to shop online this holiday season, you can support the Zoo through AmazonSmile by linking to your regular Amazon account!

When you shop AmazonSmile and select the Central Florida Zoological Society as your charity, a portion of the eligible purchase price will be donated to support conservation and education programs at the Zoo.


Amazon Wish List:
And if getting a gift for one of your favorite animals is on your list this year then please visit the Zoo’s Amazon Wish List for items selected by our animal care team!


Adopt An Animal:
The Zoo also encourages symbolic adoptions of our animal ambassadors through our Adopt An Animal program. These make great gifts for the holiday season!


Can I help in other ways?

Absolutely! There are lots of ways you can Choose the Zoo this holiday season and beyond!


Don’t forget—one of the best and most simple ways you can help the Zoo is to spread the word! Follow, like, and share our Facebook and Instagram pages. Tell your friends, family members, and co-workers about the Zoo and encourage them to support us, too!
