Friends of Zoo Miami


Our FOZM program has recently undergone some changes to improve your donor experience at Zoo Miami. 

Friends of Zoo Miami (FOZM) is a membership program for wildlife enthusiasts dedicated to supporting the mission of Zoo Miami through their annual giving. Members of FOZM play a critical role in sustaining Zoo Miami’s pioneering conservation efforts, which address some of today’s most pressing ecological issues. Donors also provide vital support for the care and enrichment of more than 3,000 animals from all over the world and for our innovative education programs, which instill a passion for wildlife and conservation for future generations.

In recognition of their generosity and commitment, FOZM members receive insider access to Zoo Miami, including behind-the-scenes tours, private animal encounters, opportunities to meet with keepers and learn about their work with animals, exclusive invitations to donor events and programs, and more. Click here to join or renew your FOZM membership, or contact the development department at or 305-255-5551.
