Support a Species is a philanthropic program to build and maintain a healthy Zoo. Animal and veterinary care continues all year with the wonderful support from donors like you!
Each quarter we will feature a different species at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. You will have the opportunity to learn more about the health and well-being of these animals and how your support can impact the wonderful animal care here at the Zoo.
All donation amounts are accepted, and everyone will receive a PDF fact sheet and fillable certificate attached to their confirmation email.
Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is a long-term leader in gorilla research, care and management including spearheading the Gorilla Species Survival Plan (SSP) Program across all accredited zoos of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.
