Our favorite gala may be going virtual this year and we look forward to making it a celebration! With the advent of a world health crisis and daily changes to our lives, it's never been more important to be here for each other and our animals. The well-being of our animals is at the Zoo's core and unites the people who comprise it. Please join us this spring in creating new possibilities for our Zoos. We promise to share updates in the coming weeks and request your support while moving ahead. 

Zootopia, Zoo New England's annual fundraising gala, brings the zoo to the Cambridge waterfront as the Royal Sonesta Boston Hotel is transformed for an unforgettable evening of special animal ambassadors, auctions, dinner, and dancing. We will honor Dr. Charudutt Mishra, Snow Leopard Trust Executive Director, with the E. O. Wilson Living the Mission Award. All proceeds from Zootopia will directly benefit Zoo New England's mission to inspire and educate the next generation of conservation stewards and leaders and support our expert animal care.


Thank you for your generosity and be well!
