About the Zoo

Mission Statement

Zoo Boise connects our visitors with animals to inspire and involve our community in the conservation of wildlife worldwide.

 

Zoo Boise is a service of the City of Boise and is supported by the Friends of Zoo Boise, a 501(c)(3) membership organization that supports Zoo Boise in the area of animal acquisition, capitol improvement projects, education programs, volunteer opportunities, and special events. The goal of each of these components is to increase public awareness, knowledge, and appreciation of the zoo, wild animals, animal habitats, species conservation and the environment.

Zoo Boise is accredited by the Association of Zoos & Aquariums (AZA). Look for the AZA logo whenever you visit a zoo or aquarium as your assurance that you are supporting a facility dedicated to providing excellent care for animals, a great experience for you, and a better future for all living things.

Friends of Zoo Boise is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization (tax ID #82-6005995). All gifts are tax deductible and qualify for the Idaho State Education Tax Credit.
