Despite the Lehigh Valley Zoo being temporarily closed to guests, we are #ClosedButStillCaring for the animals under our devoted attention. We are working hard to #SustainOurMission and would love to have your support. Below, please find a list of the primary ways in which you can help.
Help us to #SustainOurMission by making a donation today. A small, monthly donation or a larger, one-time donation will help us care for the animals during this critical time and allow us to continue to be a leader in wildlife conservation once we reach the other side of this pandemic.
Social distancing is key, and who better to be the figurehead for this movement than Bean, our resident Linnaes’ Two-Toed Sloth. We urge you to #BeLikeBean by lounging around, enjoying your favorite snacks, and keeping social distancing a priority, all while you wearing our limited edition Bean shirt!
The Lehigh Valley Zoo now has a Redbubble store! Support your local zoo with exclusive shirts, mugs, phone cases, and more. Who ever said you can’t practice social distancing in style? Plus, all proceeds from your purchase go towards Lehigh Valley Zoo’s mission of animal conservation and education during this critical time.
Helping out an organization who’s a leader in conservation and getting awesome new merchandiss featuring your favorite animals? Sounds like a win-win!
Did you know that several of our ambassador animals are artists? With our new Etsy store, you can now own your own unique ambassador animal masterpiece! Our animals have been busy painting enrichment as part of their physical activity while guests are away. Get your one-of-a-kind painting by animals like Bean the sloth, Mona the groundhog, Devlyn the lemur, and more!
Missing our animals? Symbolically ADOPT one today! Your adopted animal will remain at Lehigh Valley Zoo under the care of our professional staff, ready and waiting for you to visit! We will issue a digital certificate, fact sheet and photo for you to gift to the recipient for the time being. Once our staff is cleared to resume normal operations your ADOPT package will be promptly prepared for pickup, or if requested, shipping.
For a limited time, enjoy $15 OFF all ADOPT-An-Animal packages! We thank you for your understanding and support during this time!
Gift cards are great way to show your support. They never expire and can be used to purchase a membership, tokens, encounters and merchandise at our gift shop!
NEW MEMBERS: Want to buy a membership but don’t want to miss any of your 12 months of fun?! Buying your membership now will help us #SustainOurMission while we are closed. We will begin your 12 months once the Zoo opens back up for normal business. All cards and tokens will be available for pickup upon your first visit to the zoo.
EXISTING MEMBERS: We recognize everyone has been affected by the disruption, therefore Lehigh Valley Zoo would like to offer an extension to your membership. We will extend your expiration date for as many weeks as we are closed. We hope the extension will allow your concerns to remain where they should be, with the health and well being of you and your family. At this time there is nothing that you need to do in order to take advantage of this extension – it will be automatic. Upon your first visit back to the zoo we will update your existing membership cards with a new expiration date.
