How Does Bunnyville Support the Detroit Zoological Society’s (DZS) Mission?

By attending events hosted by the Detroit Zoo, you are directly supporting the DZS mission of creating meaningful connections between people, animals and the natural world so all can thrive. Your event admission provides support so that DZS can continue to demonstrate extraordinary leadership in conservation, animal welfare, education and environmental sustainability.

At the Detroit Zoo, animals have the freedom to decide where they want to spend time within their habitats — whether indoors, outdoors or in hidden areas. Although habitats will be open during your visit, some animals may choose to stay out of sight. Thank you for understanding and supporting our commitment to providing the highest level of care for the animals at the Zoo.
