Know Before You Go:
In order to ensure the safety of staff and guests, we've made modifications to the Zoo experience in accordance with public guidance and health recommendations. Please be sure to review the following Re-Opening FAQs for Franklin Park Zoo and Stone Zoo before your visit.


Health and Safety Update regarding the COVID-19 Novel Coronavirus

Zoo New England’s mission is to preserve and protect the natural world, and care is at the heart of everything we do. To protect our guests, staff, volunteers and community amid concerns of the COVID-19 outbreak (novel coronavirus), Franklin Park Zoo and Stone Zoo will be temporarily closed until further notice. All scheduled events and education programs are also cancelled during this time.

Zoo New England continues to closely monitor updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, World Health Organization and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health as the situation unfolds. We will continue to keep you updated here on our website and on our social media pages.

Our animals are healthy and well, and we will continue to provide them with the dedicated, professional care that we always have. Critical operations staff, including animal care teams and other selected employees, will continue working at the zoo to provide vital care to our animals and infrastructure. We have a good stock of essential food and medical supplies for our animals, and will prepare contingencies and proactively monitor our supply chain to assure essentials remain on hand.

Thank you for your patience, understanding and support of our Zoos’ mission, staff and animals. We hope that you stay well and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

All for our Animals

We remain committed to the well-being of our animals during these challenging and unprecedented times. You can help by making a gift to our All for Our Animals Fund. No donation is too small, and all proceeds go directly towards funding critical animal care for the nearly 2,000 animals that call your Zoos home.

CARES Act Charitable Giving Incentive

In an effort to encourage everyone to support nonprofit organizations in these challenging times, the new federal coronavirus relief bill provides all taxpayers with an above-the-line deduction for up to $300 in charitable donations this year. The deduction is available even if you don’t itemize. If you do itemize, the CARES Act raises the limit on charitable gifts even further, to 100% of your Adjusted Gross Income. Please consult your financial adviser to understand what the new legislation means for you personally.
