Birthday Gifts

Celebrate this important milestone by making a donation in honor of the Tropical Forest babies! You can also help by donating your used cellphone at the collection box by the gorilla exhibit. By recycling your phones, you help protect animals like western lowland gorillas that live in areas where cell phone materials are mined.

Just for Fun!

Committed to Conservation

Zoo New England participates in the Baird’s Tapir, Western Lowland Gorilla, Pygmy Hippo and De Brazza’s Monkey Species Survival Plans (SSP), which is a cooperative, inter-zoo program coordinated nationally through the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). SSPs help to ensure the survival of selected species in zoos and aquariums, most of which are threatened or endangered, and enhance conservation of these species in the wild.
