Holiday Gift Guide

Holiday Gift Guide

Happy Holidays from the Fort Worth Zoo!

As we enter the season of giving, consider gifting the Fort Worth Zoo to your loved ones. Through membership, behind-the-scenes encounters or summer camps, the wonderment of wildlife and the animal kingdom can be a great way to give a creative gift. A present from the Fort Worth Zoo is a gift in more ways than one as your purchases will directly impact the Zoo and its residents. Money spent on the items and programs listed in this gift guide will go toward care and feeding for the animals and the overall operating costs of maintaining a 365-day-per-year organization.

On behalf of all of us at the Fort Worth Zoo, we thank you for your membership, continued support and commitment to wildlife education and conservation.

Animal Enrichment

If you have ever seen the Zoo’s elephants kick around a boomer ball or caught the lions pawing at a hanging grapevine wreath, then you have experienced the value of enrichment items first-hand. The Zoo’s Animal Enrichment Program benefits all animals – big and small – by providing them with opportunities to express behaviors such as foraging, exploring, playing or even resting.

The Zoo accomplishes this by providing variety within the animals’ environments each day – offering new food items, objects and toys, nest materials and novel scents. This includes all kinds of items for busy paws, tails, beaks, mouths and noses.

Your donations will help the Zoo acquire enrichment items like those listed on the Enrichment Wish List.
