Southwick's ZooMathon


worcester, MA 01605

Please join us Saturday, May 23rd from 9A-7P as the Friends of Southwick's Zoo all come together to help support our favorite local zoo, Southwick's Zoo, More than a Zoo!

Our 10-hour ZOOmathon will feature behind the scenes videos of our favorite animals and zoo operations (including feeding time), special (celebrity) guests, local musical guests as well as great stories of our favorite zoo from zookeepers and caring members of our community. You won't want to miss it!

As we all know, our favorite zoo is temporarily closed and the 2020 season opening has been delayed due to the current pandemic. However, their dedicated animal care team is still there working tirelessly to provide daily expert care for the over 850 animals at Southwick’s.

Like many businesses and organizations, COVID-19 has had a drastic impact on the zoo. The delay in their opening has resulted in a loss of the income they truly rely on to operate.

OUR zoo needs OUR support more than ever. 
Southwick’s Zoo is privately owned, open seasonally, and does not receive any state or federal funding. Admission proceeds go directly towards veterinary care, diets, enrichment, heating, exhibit maintenance, the design of new exhibits, paying our dedicated staff, and the many other expenses involved in housing and caring for animals year-round.
