Save Wild Things And Wild Places With Us!

Our Conservation Club – the Keeper's, Curator's and Director's Circle levels – is making a difference for animal conservation through membership support of the Indianapolis Zoo, and you can, too.

Together, we are supporting the care of familiar faces at home, including rescued animals like California sea lions Holly and Joy, Atlantic bottlenose dolphin Taz and Pacific walrus Pakak. We're also taking the Zoo's mission global, helping save elephants in Tanzania with the Tarangire Elephant Project, supporting habitat restoration in Indonesia as part of the Kutai Orangutan Project and so much more.

​Join us to increase our impact and help secure a future for wild things and wild places. Start making a difference today by contacting Alicia Cornett at 317-630-2059 or to upgrade or to request more information.
