Carousel Sponsorships

Our Lives Revolve Around You

The Endangered Species Carousel has spun smiles and supported wildlife conservation in nearly 3 million turns since 1997. Your family or business name can be a part of its next revolution, delighting children of all ages while saving some of their most beloved animals from extinction.

Carousel animal sponsorship is an extraordinary way to honor family, celebrate friends or distinguish your business while helping protect the world’s most threatened species.
