Helmerich Playground: Behaving Like Animals
We invite you to be part of one of the most dynamic and exciting periods in Tulsa Zoo's history.
The Tulsa Zoo is paving a path toward greatness.
As part of the zoo’s transition from city governance to a public-private partnership, Tulsa Zoo Management, Inc., commissioned a master plan to build the world-class exhibits our community and animals deserve, as well as address the backlog of deferred maintenance at our more than 90-year-old facility.
Already your zoo has delivered. In the few short years since the January 2011 transition, our guests and our animals have been treated to a $26 million, fully funded and completed Phase 1: the Mary K. Chapman Rhino Reserve, Lost Kingdom exhibit complex, the Osage Casino & Hotel Giraffe Barn, the St. John Family Den, plus additional smaller-scale enhancements.
As we continue on this journey, the Tulsa Zoo will rely on the entire community to make our plans a reality. The mission is clear, the vision is far-reaching, and our plan is in place. Your investment will be a part of a lasting legacy and create an impact for decades to come.
Learn more about the campaign and the master plan, then decide what role you will play in helping us build a zoo beyond anyone’s wildest dreams.
The families of Green Country deserve nothing less than a world-class zoo. But we can’t fulfill the master plan without your help. Only through public funding, generous donations, and loyal volunteers will this be possible.Donate Today
