The team needs your help

Help us light the Nina Mason Pulliam Beacon of Hope for the Simon Skjodt International Orangutan Center!

The Simon Skjodt International Orangutan Center is a one of a kind exhibit which will attract visitors from around the country, enhance the Indianapolis Zoo's reputation as one of the world's best institutions, and encourage positive actions to help save orangutans from extinction. We cannot bring this vision into reality, however, without help.

With your help, the Indianapolis Zoo has built the orangutans coming to Indianapolis a spectacular and unique home - the only facility that can keep these orangutans together in an exhibit specifically designed to meet their physical, social, and intellectual needs.

This best in the world habitat will draw millions of new visitors, instill learning, enable research, empower action, and enhance our downtown skyline. With its unique design, it will become a beacon for the city, for other zoos, and for orangutans in the wild.
