Support a NEW Sacramento Zoo and Its Animals by Bidding or Donating TODAY!
The Sacramento Zoo is asking the public to help NAME its baby giraffe. All proceeds from this naming contest and donation opportunity will go toward its campaign to build an amazing new, state-of-the-art zoological park (the first to be built in more than 30 years!)! All donations of $10 and more are entered for a chance to win a meet and greet with the new calf and her mother in the giraffe barn! And, of course, then there is the raffle to NAME the baby!

The nonprofit Sacramento Zoological Society needs your support now more than ever! The current Sacramento Zoo is more than 95-years old. At just 14.7 acres, the zoo’s current footprint is landlocked and unable to provide the necessary space for many of its beloved residents, including giraffes, big cats, okapi, and so many others. Over the past 30 years, the zoo has lost many of its iconic animal species due to space constraints, including tiger, hippopotamus, and bear. This decline will continue if the zoo stays where it is.
That's why NOW is the time for a new, modern zoological park for the animals and for visitors of all ages from throughout our region and far beyond!
A new zoo in Elk Grove will allow our wildlife care professionals to create expansive natural habitats, bolster our conservation programs, and allow the zoo to better serve its educational mission by accommodating more than twice the number of guests per year.
Please pledge your support today by bidding on the chance to name the newest addition to our giraffe herd or by making a donation to support our Vision for a Wild Tomorrow – our fundraising campaign for the New Zoo!
