Sponsorship Opportunities – Overview

The Maryland Zoo is a place where families of all kinds come to meet for memorable experiences and meaningful connections.  The Zoo recently hosted more than 400,000 annual visitors and continues to grow an impressive audience of engaged, passionate supporters.

The Zoo’s animal collection encompasses more than 1,500 mammals, birds, amphibians, and reptiles representing nearly 200 species in naturalistic and acclaimed exhibits including The Maryland Wilderness featuring an award-winning children’s zoo, The Polar Bear Watch, The African Journey, and the Zoo’s next premier project, a state-of-the-art African Penguin Exhibit.

Proud to be a leader in education, The Maryland Zoo is home to educational programs that support learning outcomes for Maryland schools and are aligned with federal and state curricula. The Zoo serves nearly 87,000 students, teachers, and chaperones annually through the Free School Admission Program.  Outreach staff extend the reach of the Zoo’s education programming by providing off-site interactive programs to more than 46,000 children and adults each year.
