Wish Lists

Support the Zoo and our conservation partners by purchasing items from our Amazon Wish List. We strive to keep our animals happy and engaged by giving each animal customized treats and toys, or enrichment, to keep their minds and bodies active. We also communicate regularly with our dozens of conservation partners around the globe to understand their evolving needs and support them to the fullest extent possible. Each purchase you make from our wish lists fuels our animal care and conservation work

Greener Purchasing

Do you love the convenience of shopping with Amazon but hate the packaging? There are a few ways you can reduce the footprint of your purchases.

1. Choose products with frustration-free packaging.

You can search for products available with frustration free packaging by simply adding “frustration free packaging” in the search field. Items are listed on the Amazon product page with the following language: “Item arrives in packaging that reveals what's inside.” Your item will be delivered in an easy to open, 100% recyclable package. Amazon currently offers more than 100,000 different products with this option.

2. Request less packaging.

First, contact Amazon’s customer care team and let them know you would like your account to be noted for reduced packaging when shipping your orders.There are a few ways you can do this:

  • Send an email to customer service (cs-reply@amazon.com) asking them to avoid plastic packaging and extra packaging—which means no bubble wrap or packing peanuts.
  • You can call them at 1 (888) 280-4331 and make your request over the phone.
  • Or live chat with an Amazon associate on their customer service contact page.

3. Shop Amazon Warehouse.

One of the easiest ways to save money and reduce your footprint when shopping Amazon is through their Warehouse: millions of pre-owned, used, and open box items.

4. Opt for slower delivery.

If you don’t really need your order immediately, choose a slower delivery option. If you have multiple items, select the option to group your items into the fewest possible packages.
