The Zoo is a world-renowned facility and the first to be accredited as a zoo, an aquarium, and a botanical garden by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums and the American Association of Museums. Look for the AZA logo whenever you visit a zoo or aquarium to know you are supporting a facility dedicated to providing excellent care for animals, a great experience for you, and a better future for all living things.
Home to nearly 1,600 animals and 23,000 plants, including many threatened and endangered species, the Indianapolis Zoo is the largest zoo in the United States that receives no direct tax support. With your contribution, you can directly support wildlife conservation, animal care and education programs at the Zoo. Your support will ensure we remain a beloved institution for our city and continue to be an ambassador of hope for thousands of species.
