Purchase from Our Wish List

Amazon Wish List: Items on our wish list support our animal care, operations, and educational programs and are updated regularly. Many of these items are behind the scenes enrichment items. While you may not see the animals enjoying your gift, please know that our animals will have hours of fun with these items in their off-exhibit areas.

Because Amazon does not provide us with any donor information, we ask that you include a free card with you name, address, and email address as a part of your package.

Thank you for your support! If you have any questions, please contact the development team at development@ki​ or 260-427-2040.
