On Thursday, Feb. 4, 2021, Friends of the National Zoo and the Smithsonian's National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute announced the dissolution of their 63-year partnership following the debilitating financial impact of COVID-19 on both organizations. We will be transitioning responsibilities, including memberships, to the Zoo over the next few months.

FONZ members: As you may have heard, FONZ and the Zoo recently announced the dissolution of our 63-year partnership. We are working together for a smooth transition of your membership and current member benefits. You do not have to take any action to continue receiving your benefits, and when the Zoo reopens, your current membership card and ID number will continue to be honored. Expect to hear more from us soon on the new Smithsonian's National Zoo membership program.
