PLEASE NOTE: PRICES FOR MEMBERSHIP (AS WELL AS FOR ANY ADD-ONS, DUPLICATE CARDS OR DONATIONS) WILL BE ADJUSTED DURING THE CHECKOUT PROCESS ONCE A VALID DISCOUNT CODE IS PROVIDED
A North Carolina Zoo Society Zookeeper Membership provides free admission to the North Carolina Zoo for the members of a family who share the same household, as well as other benefits (click here to review all membership benefits).
The free admission covers two adults and their minor children or grandchildren (those younger than 18). Zookeeper Members may also bring two guests for free on each visit to the North Carolina Zoo. Zookeeper Members also receive a decorative NC Zoo Society license plate.
If you are an employee of one of the NC Zoo Society's Corporate Partners (listed here), you are entitled to a 25 percent discount on the price of a one- or two-year membership. When you purchase your membership you may also choose to do any or all of the following:
- purchase "add-ons"—each add-on purchased admits one free guest on every visit;
- purchase duplicate membership cards;
- make an additional donation to support Zoo conservation programs, renovations or general activities.
Please note that your 25 percent corporate employee discount does not apply to the cost of any add-ons, duplicate cards or donations you select when purchasing your membership. The discount applies to the cost of the base membership only.
In order to secure the discount, you must provide your employer's Coupon Code in the "Coupon Code" field when checking out. Prices for the membership, plus any add-ons, duplicate cards, and/or additional donations selected, will be adjusted after the coupon code is provided. If you do not know your employer's coupon code, please contact your HR Department for that information.
Finally, please note that your employer's coupon code does not apply to any other NC Zoo Society merchandise; for example, you cannot use a discount code for a VIP tour or a "Shadow a Vet" experience. Any non-eligible item(s) purchased using a discount code will be refunded and the buyer will be given an opportunity to purchase the item(s) at regular price.
All, or nearly all, of the cost of a Zookeeper Membership is tax-deductible; the estimated value of this membership is under $8 a year.
