Membership Matters

Did you know that by becoming a member of the Los Angeles Zoo you directly contribute to exemplary animal care, delivering distinctive and diverse learning opportunities, and creating unforgettable experiences? Plus, your membership pays for itself in as few as two visits per year!

As part of its commitment to conservation and sustainability, the Membership Division recently switched to using digital cards rather than plastic. Switching to digital cards is a big step for conservation because it eliminates non-recyclable plastic cards and the enclosed letter.

Membership cards are non-transferable, so you would need to buy a membership that allows you to add an extra cardholder (Family Deluxe or higher) or give the grandparents your one-time use guest passes. Your children are always covered under your Family membership, so your membership card will cover free admission for them.

Family level members who wish to add a nanny or babysitter to their membership have three options:

  • Upgrade your membership to the Family Deluxe level (which allows for three adult cardholders) and add your nanny or babysitter’s name to your record.
  • Substitute the nanny or babysitter’s name for one of the adult cardholders on the Family level membership ($20 fee and you must return the original membership card). Only one name change per year. Restrictions apply.
  • Give your guest passes to your nanny or babysitter to use for one-time entrance.

A replacement card costs $10. You may order with credit card or by phone at (323) 644-4747 or mail your request with a personal check to GLAZA, Membership Services, 5333 Zoo Dr., Los Angeles, CA 90027. You will receive your replacement card within three to four weeks. You may visit the Zoo in the meantime by presenting your photo ID at the Zoo’s membership booth.
