The Zoo has many important missions. To fulfil these, we rely on the support of those who share our vision and want to support the work of the Zoo.

The Zoo’s budget mainly comes from tickets sales. The generous donations of our supporters enable us to undertake special projects, build new exhibits and renovate and renew the Zoo.

You can support the Zoo and the projects that are close to your heart via the Global Giving webpage.

If you have any questions about donating to the Zoo, please contact our International Relations Manager, Rachael Risby Raz at:

-To preserve rare animals and species threatened with extinction.

-To develop and conduct educational activities and outreach programs that will cultivate and nurture the values of nature conservation and wildlife protection among the general public; to enhance public awareness of environmental issues and encourage a love of animals.

-To create a rich and diversified recreational atmosphere in beautiful surroundings, which subtly promote an appreciation of nature and of the environment.

-To conduct research that involves the preservation, breeding, and return to the wild of various species

-To participate in national and international research activities and projects in these fields

-To conduct both theoretical and practical research work in the fields of zoology, biology, and environmental science.

-To encourage community participation, and conduct the types of educational and cultural activities that are geared towards Jerusalem's unique and diverse population, and are accessible to all communities.

-To develop distinct programs and create opportunities for groups with special needs, so that they can be involved in animal care, grounds-keeping, and other useful activities throughout the zoo grounds.

-To make the zoo a unique and attractive tourist site, whose uniqueness derives partly from its collection of Biblical animals.

Do you want to help return fallow deer or otters to the wild? Would you like to support a project of animal-assisted therapy for children in special education? Or perhaps you want to help save the Sumatran tiger? We are happy to help you make that possible with your donation.
