Mission

Since 1958 the Friends of the National Zoo (FONZ) has been providing support to the Smithsonian's National Zoo. Since then FONZ has raised millions of dollars to support the critical work of the National Zoo and the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute – including species preservation, animal care, Zoo-based events and volunteer Zoo staff. We are committed with the Smithsonian's National Zoo mission to save species – for us and generations to come.
