Friends of the National Zoo


We are a group of friends who love nature with a burning desire to help our animal and plant life.
We enjoy nature and would like to leave it in a better state than we found it for future generations.


By becoming a Friend, you help the National Zoological Gardens with the important task
of conserving wildlife by breeding species which are endangered or extinct, in their natural environment.


The National Zoological Gardens really stands out from the rest, as you would never imagine being
in the middle of the city and be surrounded with wildlife from all parts of the world. Being a Friend you have the privilege to work in this unique setting and surround yourself with the love for wildlife.


Join our organization to make our world a better place.
