Zoo Explorer Society

The Zoo Explorer Society is a special group of philanthropic-minded members who are deeply committed to the Hogle Zoo’s mission. They believe in connecting our visitors with the natural world and engaging them in wildlife conservation action locally and worldwide. Through their donations, they help ensure the future of the Hogle Zoo for generations to come. Their philanthropic gifts help more than 1,000 Hogle Zoo animals that receive top-notch medical, husbandry and nutrition programs.
