Your membership supports our mission:

Inspiring Communities to Save Wildlife for Future Generations

Membership at Denver Zoo is about so much more than spending quality time with your family and connecting with the wonders of nature. As a non-profit organization, we rely on membership fees to help offset the cost of the world-class care we provide for our 3,000 animals. Your contribution also helps to support our ongoing mission of Inspiring Communities to Save Wildlife for Future Generations—which takes many forms, both here on campus and in our efforts to support threatened endangered species around the world.

NOTE: All new membership purchases, current membership renewals, and member ticket reservations must be handled online, in advance. Click one of the buttons at left to purchase or renew—and start enjoying advance tickets, special entry times, merchandise discounts and more!
