Zoo Knoxville Asking for Your Help for Animals During COVID-19 Closure

Zoo Knoxville is asking the community to help support the ongoing care of zoo animals while they are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Zoo Knoxville is a non-profit organization and 75% of their daily operating funds come from sales of tickets and passes.

The zoo closed voluntarily on March 16th to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Each day the zoo is closed, they are losing an average of over $22,000 that directly supports the animals.

Donations can be made and tickets and annual passes can be purchased at www.zooknoxville.org. Tickets will be good for the remainder of 2020 and annual passes will be valid for one year from the reopening date.

There is no custom code to display.
