adotta-slider-ok-ingAs you know, Pistoia Zoological Garden is temporarily closed to the public in response to COVID-19 Precautions. We really hope this can contribute to slow down the spread of the virus. Unfortunately, the closure has coincided with our peak season. The incomes during this time help us cover most of the annual expenses. We will not be able to win the challenge we are facing all on our own. We need financial aid!

Your contribution will allow us to keep and provide vital care to our animals. Our zoo is a wonderful heaven of nature, with your help we will be able to give you, and your family or friends, a rewarding experience. Our zoo operations staff will still be able to raise endangered species as we have been doing for 50 years and really want to continue taking care and protecting nature. Help us keep our business standing.


Our site allows you to reserve tickets and passes online.

 It will be a pleasure to share this important milestone with all of you.
