A World of Discovery - Great Lakes Zoological Society Conservation Center and Rescue - A Great Family Destination!

Great Lakes Zoological Society Sponsorship Programs

Overview: Currently we offer three sponsorship programs.

  1. Animal Sponsorship
  2. Exhibit Sponsorship
  3. Organization Wide (Corporate) Sponsorship

Each sponsorship is designed to help fund costs associated with caring for the animals at the World of Discovery. Each year it costs the Great Lakes Zoological Society (GLZS) over $50,000 to provide direct care for the animals at the World of Discovery. This provides food, water, veterinary care, and the operation of systems used to control the animals environment. Help us by making a direct contribution to the sponsorship program, allowing us to continue to care these animals. Each sponsorship is for the term of one year.

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
