Help Your Zoo Get Wilder!

It’s an entirely different experience to see an animal in person rather than on a screen. There’s a bond to create and memories to make when watching two elephant calves splashing in a watering hole or a lion pride spending time with each other as you are only separated by a pane of glass or pool of water.

With that in mind, big changes are underway at the Fort Worth Zoo and things are getting wilder. In 2016, the Fort Worth Zoo announced A Wilder Vision, a $100-million capital campaign that includes new exhibit space, renovated habitats, special events space, multiple dining areas and most importantly, new ways to observe, interact with and learn about animals. 

Zoo officials were proud to announce that the quiet phase of the capital campaign concluded with $90 million pledged from local individuals, foundations and corporations. The Zoo then enlisted the public’s help in generating the remaining $10 million as part of its community campaign, which is ongoing.

The Fort Worth Zoo invites you to experience the African Savanna and looks forward to the completion of Elephant Springs in 2020. As we complete each phase of A Wilder Vision, we strengthen our commitment to conservation, education and entertainment with families across the Metroplex.
