Melbourne Zoo - Closed
Melbourne Zoo, Healesville Sanctuary and Werribee Open Range Zoo are temporarily closed until further notice.
While our zoos have stopped accepting visitors, behind the gates, our keepers and vets are still caring for our animals, enriching them and making sure the animals feel all the love in the world right now.
Our role in the community has not changed. First and foremost, we are still a not-for-profit conservation organisation.
The zoos may be temporarily shut, but our work is not stopping. We'll do our best over the next few weeks and months to show our supporters that the world hasn't stopped turning, and that animals can still bring you happiness, even if it is from the comfort of your living room.

We are also still a place of education and enjoyment for Victorians and we will continue to bring joy and learning to households all over the world.
We'll keep fulfilling this role through our #AnimalsAtHome live stream, videos, photos and other initiatives to show people how we look after our animals, as well as why they should love, respect and care for the wildlife we share our planet with.
The bushfire recovery will also be a priority, and the money that has been donated to the Bushfire Emergency Wildlife Fund will be directed towards this enormous task.
Thank you to all our Zoo Members, visitors, donors and other supporters, we're in this together and we are committed to bringing you joy through this extraordinary time.
