Just a few words can leave a lasting legacy.

Leaving a bequest to the Zoo helps us continue to inspire and connect people with the animals and natural world that increasingly need our protection. We invite you to consider joining the many Oakland Zoo supporters who have named the Zoo in their wills or trusts. Every bequest makes a difference. To honor his three decades of leadership, we have created the Dr. Joel Parrott Legacy Circle so we can recognize and honor legacy donors. To learn more, or to tell us you have named the Zoo in your will or estate, please contact staff member Sara Becker at (510) 632-9525 ext. 188, or via email at sbecker@oaklandzoo.org
