Sunset Zoological Park & Wildlife Conservation Trust

Providing a Long-Term Future for Sunset Zoo
The Sunset Zoological Park and Wildlife Conservation Trust (Sunset Zoo Trust) was created in 1992 to foster the future of Sunset Zoo and provide a means for planned giving. The Sunset Zoo Trust provides many options for individuals to support Sunset Zoo and keep it a vital part of the Manhattan community.

The Zoo Trust is a not-for-profit organization and supports the Zoo through long-term investments. The volunteer organization manages over $400,000 in assets. An executive board oversees the organization and meets monthly. The full membership meets quarterly at 5:30pm on the last Monday of the month inside the Nature Exploration Center at the Zoo's entryway. Meetings are open to the public.
