How can you contribute and be a partner of the zoo’s activities in nature conservation in Israel and the world?

Volunteering at the Zoo

If you love animals, you care about nature and the environment, and you want to do “something for your soul,” come volunteer at the zoo! You can volunteer at a variety of zoo departments (according to need). As volunteers, you can get up close to the animals and help the zoo staff provide appropriate and high-level treatment to the various animals, as well as offering your own individual talents in many ways.

For more information send an email to volunteers@jerusalemzoo.org.il


Friends of the Zoo

The friends of the Zoo is an association which contributes annually to the zoo’s activities and takes part in financially supporting special initiatives for the community, zoo development, and educational initiatives on the topics of nature conservation. All this activity is made possible by donations from individuals and companies. Aid from the Zoo Friends is essential for the zoo, and the friends are part of the educational, cultural, and zoological activity at the zoo. They symbolize the public recognition of the zoo’s activities.

Every June, the zoo hosts a prestigious event, where Zoo Friends meet with zoo management and staff and enjoy all the new attractions and events taking place at the zoo.

How to Become a Zoo Friend

If you love the zoo and want to contribute (minimum contribution is 2,500 ILS per year) and be a partner in our activities for the sake of nature conservation and protection of endangered animals, we invite you to contact our Zoo Friends coordinator, Talya Tzabari-Gibli, at telephone: 050-5726999 or email at yedidim@jerusalemzoo.org.il

The zoo provides its Friends with a personal honorary admission ticket, with admission for the Friend and four accompanying guests to the zoo throughout the year, as well as participation in special events for the Zoo Friends. Additionally, each Friend is entitled to discounts at the Israel Aquarium and at the Zoo Souvenir Shop and Café.
