Keep the Vision Alive and Join the Vision Keeper Club!

Vision Keepers at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium are a group of philanthropic individuals who help ensure the vitality and excellence of the Zoo. They learn more about wildlife, wild places, the environment and the conservation efforts in which the Zoo is engaged both locally and abroad. Annual donations of $500* or more directly support the Zoo’s animal care, education, and conservation.

Vision Keeper Club members experience the Zoo in unique ways, with opportunities to go behind the scenes to meet our animals and their keepers, learn more about the important conservation topics championed by the Zoo, and have fun at several exclusive Zoo and Zoo Society events throughout the year.

*Donations are defined as annual gifts of $500 or more, excluding auction purchases, ticket purchases, adopt-a-species sales and event-related sponsorships. Benefits begin the month the gift is received and will span over a 12-month period.
