Help Grow and Develop Arkansas's Only Accredited Zoo!

The Arkansas Zoological Foundation is the primary source for the growth and development of the Little Rock Zoo. Now in its 91st year, the Zoo's mission is to provide engaging experiences that inspire people to value and conserve our natural world. We serve hundreds of thousands of individuals each year, including numerous school children. We encourage people to save species and habitats from loss and to pass along value of our natural world. The zoo is where learning lives.

As a zoo accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) the Little Rock Zoo sets a high standards for animal care, conservation and education. Our staff work tirelessly to exceed this standard of excellence because we have a vision to achieve more. New habitats are needed to engage our guests with animals and to truly connect them with the wonder and amazement of nature. We can create a place that nurtures our passion for animals and encourages respect for all living things.

Through generous donations the Foundation has brought some of our most amazing and educational exhibits to the Zoo. The success of the Laura P. Nichols Penguin Exhibit, Laura P. Nichols Cheetah Outpost, the Arkansas Heritage Farm, and the ever popular Diamond Express Train campaigns show that private/public partnerships can make the Little Rock Zoo even better. We look forward to renovation of the old Education Building into the Conservation Learning Center coming in 2018!
