ZOO






Visit The Birmingham Zoo Website

You may have heard Mayor Larry Langford’s announcement in the news this week to increase funding support for the Birmingham Zoo. This support will assist with our Trails of Africa exhibit and provide ongoing financial support to the Zoo. Trails of Africa is a $15 million project that will make the Birmingham Zoo a national leader in the care and conservation of threatened elephants and other African animals.

The Birmingham Zoo needs this additional support. This is our window of opportunity for growth, expansion and modernization. To get this project underway, we must have the support of the Birmingham City Council and to get their support we’re calling on you! We sincerely appreciate your dedicated support over the years and we need your help now more than ever!

1. Email or call Birmingham City Council representatives and let them know how much the Zoo means to you and the community by telling them to vote YES! to increase funding for the next generation’s Zoo.
