Joyful Tributes

What better place to recognize a special occasion or loved one than in the Zoo for all to see? Best of all, your gift will support the Zoo’s missions of animal wellness, conservation and education.



The mangrove-shaped “Tree of Joy” is a metallic sculpture created by local artists and Zoo staff within the Celebration Garden. Similar to the Remembrance Tree, this monument features leaves and fish of varying sizes that can be engraved to commemorate joyous occasions (like birthdays, graduations, weddings and anniversaries) or honor a special person in your life.


Children's Naming Path

This recognition path is located on the boardwalk adjacent to Meerkat Hamlet and extends across the bridge into Expedition Africa. It consists of planks engraved with brick-sized rectangles that include children’s names and birthdates, and many have honored their pets here as well.

25th Anniversary Monument

Celebrate our first quarter-century by purchasing a spot on a beautiful new monument located just outside the Zoo for everyone to see. Walk through this beautiful recognition enclave and view the names of our loyal supporters. The Zoo was built by 16,000 volunteers, and this monument has space for the same number of names to be engraved on its three pillars.
