Amazon Wish List

The North Carolina Zoo's animal keepers have compiled a wishlist of interesting objects that will engage, surprise, and delight animals living at the Zoo.


We hope that you will consider purchasing one or two of the items from our wishlist as a donation to the North Carolina Zoo Society. Once you make your purchase, Amazon will mail your gift directly to the North Carolina Zoo Society to be distributed to the keepers who requested it. Once the gift arrives, we will send you a receipt documenting your tax-deductible donation to a private, 501(c) non-profit.  Click here to donate.


You can magnify the impact of your gift by using  Amazon Smile and choosing the North Carolina Zoo Society as your charity of choice.

When you do, Amazon will donate 5 percent of the cost of eligible purchases directly to the Zoo Society.

Now, that will make us SMILE twice!
Thank you for helping us take good care of the Zoo's animals.
