Funding Projects

Every year, the Zoological Society raises funds for a project that will support our mission to conserve, educate and support the Milwaukee County Zoo. Capital projects support exhibits, improving visitor engagement and animal enrichment experiences. Conservation or education projects build empathy for wildlife and inspire conservation action. All projects support our mission and partnership with the Milwaukee County Zoo. This is an opportunity for supporters to donate in any amount and see the direct result of their giving.

2022-23 APPEAL

Rhin-opolis: Build a Home for Rhinos

Designs are taking shape and now we need to get shovels in the ground for a couple of new habitats at the Zoo. We are hoping to complete the last leg of Adventure Africa and create a new indoor and outdoor home for the rhinos and a new indoor habitat for hippos.

Please consider a gift to create a stomping ground for the rhinos and make this exciting endeavor a reality!

Donate today!

Donate today and Miller Brewing Company will match a portion of your donation!

Donations of $100 or more will be recognized on electronic signs in the Conservation Outpost within Adventure Africa. Signs will be updated quarterly.

Thanks for your support!
