Friends of Sunset Zoo Membership Information
Please consider purchasing a membership online. This will accelerate your entrance and minimize contact between individuals.
Purchase memberships here: www.sunsetzoo.com
If you are not a member, we will be selling admission tickets in two hour timed blocks to limit attendance to no more than 240 persons in the Zoo at one time. This is 50% capacity at identified viewing spaces throughout the Zoo. This guideline will remain active until further notice.
Note: Memberships have been extended for the same duration that we were closed. Memberships that expired in that time period are still valid. You can still use your current card with an old expiration date.
We are currently working to update your membership expiration date through our database. For questions about this extension please email our Membership Coordinator.
Donations make a difference for us.
Especially during these extraordinary circumstances, we count on our members and their support. Should you wish to make a donation to us you are always able to do so at Sunset Zoo directly or online. Online donations support our Expedition Asia project, the Zoo's largest expansion effort to rediscover tigers, sloth bears, and leopards.
Dedicated Reopening Days just for our members!
With our reopening, we have dedicated two days specifically for our members. These will be Tuesday, June 9, and Friday, June 12. To visit the Zoo you will just need to show your membership for admission. If you do not have a copy of your membership we can look that up for you. We do ask that you have a valid ID.
