Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden is asking for continued support from Hamilton County residents. The Zoo and Hamilton County have partnered for the last 40 years to provide a world-class Zoo that serves the local community and brings people from outside the area to the region.

The Zoo is requesting a renewal with an inflationary increase, which it has not received for 15 years. The cost of food, wages for keepers and vets, and maintenance has gone up dramatically since 2008, and an increase is needed in order for the Zoo to keep up with operations.
