The San Diego Zoo's Wish List is a shopping list formed of enrichment items needed to keep our animals happy and healthy. The Wish List also supports our efforts in wildlife conservation. Each month we focus on a different theme. Items on the Wish List range from $5 to $5,000. Donors to the monthly Wish List receive previews to the next list before it goes live.
If you prefer to place a donation via phone, please contact us at 619-231-1515, option 2, ext. 4055, or toll free at 877-363-6237. For questions and inquiries, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the rare event that an item has been discontinued or the need for an item has been satisfied, your donation will be used to purchase a comparable item for the animal you specified.
