Adopt an Animal 

Adopt an Animal at the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens to become an Honorary Zookeeper! Your donation provides much-needed funding to support the care, housing, and feeding of animals at the Zoo. In return for your generous support, you’ll receive a personalized Honorary Zookeeper certificate, a color photo, facts about your animal and more.

Celebrate the Zoo's African Forest exhibit with a Gorilla adoption!

Or, choose any animal at the Zoo.
