Sponsor our newest -- biggest -- bundle of joy - the African elephant calf!

Celebrate the birth of the Zoo's most recent addition and become a Zoo PAL!

Your support is needed now more than ever. Sponsor the African elephant this spring and help to provide exceptional animal care and enrichment for all our animals at the Toledo Zoo & Aquarium!

Questions? Please contact the Zoo at 419-385-5721, ext 2159.

Please remember that the animal you support through your sponsorship is a living creature and is subject to the same frailities as human beings. Animals become ill, die or are moved to other accommodations for breeding or other reasons. In the event that it is necessary, we may transfer your sponsorship to another suitable animal.
