1909 Lion's Pride Society 

Join Your Pride to Ours 

Thanks to the financial contributions of Zoo friends, the Kansas City Zoo will continue enriching the lives of our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, well into the future. 

The Zoo’s mission begins with conserving and protecting our world’s wildlife, assuring that generation after generation can experience the awe and diversity of our natural world.  Especially today, it is critical to maintain the well being of wild animals as so many of their environments shrink.  The decisions we make and the priorities we set should include dedicated steps to assure the future of the animals we cherish and the Zoo that maintains their safety. 

The Lion’s Pride Society was first founded in 2011 to recognize and honor the valuable contributions of Zoo friends who express their commitment to our mission by including the Kansas City Zoo in their estate plans.
