Campaign – Master Plan 2030

The opening of African Savanna in 2014 marked the completion of Utah’s Hogle Zoo’s first Master Plan. This plan brought dramatic advancements in animal home environments, animal-care facilities and many visitor amenities and represented a $70 million public/private investment. The public response was loud and clear – Zoo attendance has consistently exceeded a million guests for the past several years. Building on this success, Zoo leadership is embarking on an even more ambitious Master Plan 2030. This plan will continue the transformation of the visitor experience with enhanced animal environments, interactive exhibits and a greater emphasis on the Zoo’s conversation priorities. Master Plan 2030 envisions a Hogle Zoo that will set standards for world-class zoo management, animal care and education.

Your annual gift to Utah’s Hogle Zoo provides critical funding for animal care, conservation and guest amenities. While the support of ZAP (Zoo, Arts and Parks tax) is important in offseting our operating needs, much more financial support is needed to sustain the highest standards of animal care and provide meaningful experiences for guests of all ages.

With each visit to the zoo, we hope to inspire you to join us as stewards of our animals and of the world we share with them. Please support the 2015 Annual Appeal.
