Our Mission

TPZS has a mission to support the Idaho Falls Zoo by fundraising for projects that support increased self sufficiency of the Zoo. Financial self sufficiency will allow the Zoo to continue to improve on conservation, high quality care of the animals, and a great visitor experience.

Support the Zoo: Become a Member Today!

When you join the Tautphaus Park Zoological Society (TPZS) you become part of the zoo's efforts to meet the challenges of preserving and conserving threatened and endangered animal species. Idaho Falls Zoo's exhibits are designed to increase awareness and understanding of the animal kingdom and the natural habitats in which they live. The monies raised through membership sales help us accomplish our goals of conservation, education and research. The contribution you make is important to you, to us, and to the future of our world.

TPZS is a non-profit corporation established to assist the City of Idaho Falls with making your zoo bigger and better than ever before--for our families and for the animals. Sign Up for a membership now!
