Ophtahalmology Equipment - $7,800 (Need 1)

Our Veterinary Team has requested two pieces of eye health equipment: handheld portable slit lamp ($3,600) and a Tonovet Plus ($3,480). This equipment will allow for more detailed eye exams for all animals at Zoo Atlanta. 

Hoofstock Enrichment Shed - $3,000 (Need 1)

We are in need of a 10x16 foot shed for our Hoofstock Team.  This will update and replace the current shed (which is slowly falling apart) and give us more space to hold all of the fun enrichment items for giraffes, zebras and warthogs.

Tablet - $350 (need 2)

Our Postdoctoral Research Team is in need of two tablets to monitor the behavior of animals and record important information. We are still discovering new and amazing things about animal behavior every day! 

Nest Cams - $300 (buys 2 cameras- a need in multiple departments)

Both our Herpetology and Mammal Departments have requested these night vision cameras to monitor nests and animals on birth watch.


Greens Feeders - $250 (need 8)

Did you know our animal care team members are also inventors and engineers? These metal feeders are specially designed for primate foraging by our animal care team here at Zoo Atlanta. Each one is custom fabricated. 


Dome Cam - $200 (Need 1)

We need a stationary, outdoor dome camera to cover the blind spots created by Idgie the red panda's new exhibit modifications. 


Spinning Top - $199 (Need 2)

Juvenile orangutans and gorillas would love to play with this giant spinning top!

Burlap Roll - $190 (Need 1 roll)

Do apes love fabric? Yes they do! $190 purchases an industrial size 100-yard roll of burlap for the primates for snuggling and playtime.

Great Ape Hammocks - $140 (always in need)

The primates love relaxing, but we want to make sure they’re extra comfy. The Primate Team is requesting durable hammocks for the gorillas and orangutans. These hammocks are always a fun place for primates to play and unwind. $140 will cover the purchase price and shipping for one hammock.

Hoofstock Enrichment  - $105 (always in need)

$105 will buy special puzzle feeders and enrichment for giraffes and zebras for use in their indoor areas. This will cover the cost of specially-designed tubes, boards, balls, and trays that test their skills with "tongue twister" obstacles to promote natural foraging behaviors while having fun and getting treats!


Box of Browse - $100 (always in need through March 2019)

$100 will buy 1 box of fresh-cut browse imported from Florida. The leafy treats will be a special snack for primates when browse is not as plentiful in Georgia during the winter months.

Varsity/Boomer Ball- $59 (need 2)

Several of the Zoo's mammal species, including lions and tigers, love to play ball! Give them a workout with an ultra-durable, non-toxic, heavy-duty ball designed for the toughest animals in the Zoo!

Elephant Enrichment - $35 (always in need)

Have you seen the enrichment items hanging from the roof of our elephant habitat? The elephants love to stretch overhead to play with wind chimes, hanging puzzle feeders, PVC pipes and cargo nets of hay. By purchasing this item you are helping to keep enrichment in the sky and our pulley systems in working order.

Scent Enrichment - $27 (always in need)

Our Carnivore Team is running low on our supply of scents (colognes, perfumes, spices etc). The big cats, fossa and giant pandas are very sensory-oriented. Being able to provide a wide variety of sensory opportunities is one way we keep everyone mentally enriched. This will purchase Zoo-approved scents with high-quality ingredients that the animals love!

Jumbo Hide Box - $25 (always in need)

Reptiles and amphibians tend to be shy creatures. Providing them with easy-to-clean, reusable hides gives them a nice safe refuge to get out of sight in while in their behind-the-scenes areas. Multiple sizes allow us to provide just the right size to make a happy hiding herp!

Chew Ball/Treat Dispenser - $20 (always in need)

Animal care professionals have requested chew balls and other small treat dispensers for the bush dog, goats and pigs. They are extremely durable, recyclable and waterproof for years of use.


Kong Toys - $12 (always in need)

Did you know that dog toys are great enrichment for primates? These supersized treat puzzles are fun, ultra-durable, made from all-natural rubber and designed for determined chewers. They also include extra bounce for playtime!


Plastic Plants - $10 (always in need)

Plastic (not silk) plants help the birds have happy and secure nest sites! The Bird Team uses a lot of plastic plants around the Zoo to make visually secure hiding places for nesting birds.
