The VLM asks you to Give Local 757 – May 12, 12am-12pm


We CONNECT people to NATURE everyday!

Our doors may be closed but they are open everyday to feed, enrich and care for our many exhibit and ambassador animals.

We are the caretakers to 250 animal species (1,000 animals) living at the Museum who need daily care.
That is alot of mouths to feed!
The Museum never really closes. Provide the funds to support essential care from professional Animal Welfare & Conservation team members.


For 24 hours beginning at 12am, Tuesday May 12, anyone can be a philanthropist by donating a minimum of $10 to the Virginia Living Museum. Unlike traditional zoos, we are a sanctuary for orphaned, injured and non-releasable mammals, fish and birds. We connect people to nature through educational experiences that promote conservation. Visitors experience animals native to Virginia in habitats, discovery centers, and interactive exhibits.

Our 2020 goal is to raise $10,000 to help continue feeding, enriching and caring for our 1,ooo native fishes, birds and mammals. Here’s how you can help make this happen:

DONATE minimum of $10 on our fundraising page during Give Local 757.

SPREAD THE WORD to everyone you know on social media, by email, text, or phone.

FUNDRAISE by creating your own personal campaign to raise money.

Thank you in advance for your support to the Virginia Living Museum and to our community.
