You Can Make a World of Difference

Your gift will ensure that our Giraffes will have a happy & healthy home.

Donor Privacy Policy
Roger Williams Park Zoo and the Rhode Island Zoological Society will not sell, trade or share a donor's personal information with anyone else, nor will we send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations.

When you visit the Zoo, you just can’t miss our Masai giraffes Sukari, Amber, Jaffa, and Tufani.

Can you believe that with such tall animals, the most important part of their home at Roger Williams Park Zoo is the floor?

All 2,000+ pounds of a giraffe has to be well supported, and a rubberized floor keeps our long-legged friends from losing their balance and sliding. The floor is also where they sleep at night, and the rubberized floor keeps their body heat close.

Over time, the current floor in their indoor exhibit has become damaged. This makes it difficult to keep clean, and allows water to get underneath - making the damage even worse.

We are getting a brand new rubberized floor for Sukari, Amber, Jaffa, and Tufani, and we need your help to make it possible! Your donation will keep them safe, happy, and warm this winter.
