In this challenging time, few things are certain. But there’s one fact you can still rely on: accredited zoos and aquariums remain committed to their animals, community and the fight to save species from extinction.

#GivingZOOday is an international campaign that engages everyday zoo and aquarium visitors in philanthropy by highlighting the positive impacts these institutions have on their communities.

We invite all AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums to participate in #GivingZOOday. For information, email us or tweet to @GivingZOOday.

We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 1, charities, families, businesses, community centers and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

#GivingTuesday was founded in 2012 by New York’s 92nd Street Y in partnership with the United Nations Foundation. Together, with a team of influencers and founding partners, they launched a global movement that has engaged over 30,000 organizations worldwide. For more information, visit
