This holiday season, check out Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium for everyone on your list! Here are some ideas to get you started.

• Purchase a Zoo gift card that can be used for memberships, daily admission, shark dives, carousel rides and budgie sticks. They can be purchased at the Zoo's front gate or by phone: 253-591-5333.

• Share the excitement of discovering Zoo animals with a year-long Zoo Membership!

• Share the unforgettable experience of an Eye-to-Eye Shark Dive. The Scuba Dive is suitable for certified divers ages 15 and up; the Cage Dive is suitable for non-divers ages 8 and up.

• Visit the Zoo's gift shop for toys, stuffed animals, clothing, jewelry and more.

• Give a magical evening of holiday wonder with tickets to Zoolights--where your loved ones can explore seas of dazzling lights, be inspired by all-new animal displays, or warm up in the steamy South Pacific Aquarium with Scuba-Diving Santa.

Adopt a Zoo animal to help support animal care, wildlife conservation and the Zoo's educational programs. Each adoption gift comes with a stuffed animal, adoption certificate, animal fact sheet and photo. Order in time for Christmas by Dec. 14 at noon.

• Know a budding biologist or zookeeper? Give them a valuable learning experience with Zoo staff! Learn more about our career discovery programs, including Keeper for a Day and Marine Biologist for a Day.
