Wish List

Here is the Winter 2014 version of our keepers' wish list. If you have unused items on this list that you are looking to get rid of, or would like to purchase something to donate, we would appreciate it very much. Most of these items are available from the many local merchants that support the zoo, including Kirkwood Ace Hardware, Runnings and KT Animal Supply. If you would prefer to shop online, please click here for a link to our Amazon wish list.

If you are purchasing through the Amazon site, the zoo shipping address should come up in your address book at checkout. Just in case it does not, our UPS/delivery address is Dakota Zoo, 600 Riverside Park Road, Bismarck, ND 58504. Our Postal Service mailing address is PO Box 711, Bismarck, ND 58502-0711. Thank You!
