The Zoo is temporarily closed to the public. We are awaiting approval to re-open when the stay home order is lifted. Please continue to check back for updates.
Guests that have purchased tickets or paid for other programs affected by the closure can contact the Zoo at 559-498-5921 or firstname.lastname@example.org to reschedule or refund their purchase.
General admission tickets remain valid for one year from the date of purchase, so guests can also contact the Zoo to re-schedule their visit upon re-opening. Fresno Chaffee Zoo members will have the option to extend their membership for the length of the closure or donate that time to the Zoo.
Fresno Chaffee Zoo is home to more than 200 species, with more always on the way!
Fresno Chaffee Zoo is also home to nearly 40 species that are either endangered or extinct in the wild. The 229 zoos and aquariums accredited by the AZA announced a bold new effort in 2015 focused on saving species from extinction. SAFE: Saving Animals From Extinction will harness the collective resources of zoos, focus on specific endangered species, and work to restore healthy populations in the wild. Please visit AZA Saving Species for more information and to see how you can help!
