Safari Society


At the heart of the Zoo is the SAFARI SOCIETY, a group of visionary individuals who provide resources vital to making this oasis of wildlife, education, conservation, and species preservation a living gift—one that enhances the world for current and future generations of people, plants, and animals. Participants are part of the “inner circle” of Zoo supporters who enjoy special access, as well as programs and activities, customized to meet their interests.
