Zoo Foundation

The Sequoia Park Zoo Foundation was established in 2004 as a non-profit support organization for the City of Eureka-run Sequoia Park Zoo. Our mission is to promote and stimulate interest in the Sequoia Park Zoo, and to support the zoo’s development and programs through fundraising, marketing and other initiatives designed to enhance the zoo experience.

The Foundation has been successful in securing funding for many capital projects at the zoo, including the construction of new animal habitats, exhibit renovations and building facilities to support education and guest services. Sequoia Park Zoo offers a better experience for residents and visitors alike because of the Foundation’s support.

Working in close partnership with the City of Eureka to provide the North Coast with a spectacular zoological facility, the Foundation is responsible for:
