Gift picks that make a difference

Holiday shopping can be made easy with a quick stop at the Zoo gift shop. Besides fun toys and graphic tees, the store features many gifts that make a difference. All the gifts featured below help conservation efforts around the globe!

Plush, please

These huggable plush animals are perfect for the kids on your gift list or for those who are kids at heart! All the animals featured here - Gorilla, Giraffe, Slow Loris, Rhino, and Lion - help secure a future for wildlife. A portion of the proceeds goes towards supporting conservation programs for each animal.

Coffee, and mugs, and bears, oh my!

Coffee lovers rejoice: You can get your caffeine fix and help Andean bears! The Andean Bear Conservation Alliance mug pairs wonderfully with shade-grown Colombia Coffee. Shade-grown coffee helps protect Andean bear habitat, and proceeds from the mug and coffee sales help support Andean bear conservation.

Chavez for Charity

Chavez for Charity pairs style with a cause. With each beaded bracelet purchase, 25% of the proceeds are donated to the charity attached to the bracelet color. Proceeds from the white bracelets, all with unique charms and bead patterns, will go to the Cleveland Zoological Society and help support your Zoo!

Snow Leopard Trust

Help protect snow leopards by purchasing handmade products from Mongolia. Pick up some embroidered napkins and felted coasters for an elegant tablescape. A wool Kyrgyz rug or felted plush snow leopard is a great gift for any home. And felted bird cat toys are purrrfect for your furry friend. Each purchase helps fund the Snow Leopard Trust and their snow leopard conservation programs.

Snares to Wares

These animal sculptures are made from recovered animal wire snares in Uganda. The Snares to Wares program helps support the local community and reduces the amount of snares that threaten giraffe, lions, and elephants. Proceeds from the sales of these art sculptures go towards these wildlife conservation programs.

Gift the Zoo

Give the gift that lasts a whole year! Zoo memberships are perfect for those who want to visit the Zoo for an hour or for a whole day, 363 days a year! Great for individuals or families, a membership opens up a world of animal experiences for each and every animal lover. Five dollars from every membership goes directly to the Zoo’s conservation program, Future for Wildlife.
