Sponsor an Animal

The Bergen County Zoo strives to provide the highest level of care to the animals in its collection. You can help meet the expenses of maintaining an ever-growing collection by sponsoring an animal! It is a simple but effective way to personally help your favorite species at the zoo. And it’s a great gift idea, for yourself as well as for others!

Packages include a custom personalized animal poster, an animal information bookmark, and more depending on which package you choose!

Animal Wishlist

Our animal care staff has handpicked items that directly benefit the zoo animals.

Animal enrichment involves providing animals with items or experiences that create a change in their environment. These items work to stimulate their senses, target their natural behaviors, and are crucial to proper animal welfare!
