Zoo store also offers a brand-new Zoo Mask collection, including an animal-themed option, as well as masks featuring the iconic Ruben Rojas “Love” logo.  Ruben Rojas created the “Love” mural which has become a top photo spot located at the Zoo.

L.A. Zoo is also proud to offer select products from Ecokins, made by Wild Republic.  Ecokins are plush animals made from 100% recycled materials; each plush is made with reclaimed water bottle materials, embroidered eyes, paper tags, and biodegradable packaging. 

“We chose some of our best-selling items so they would be available for anyone to buy online, regardless of whether the zoo is open or closed. We also decided to add masks so people could show their love and support for the L.A. Zoo,” says Fabian De La Torre, Assistant General Manager for SSA, the concessionaire company providing retail, food and beverage for the Los Angeles Zoo.   

The store will continually add new items for sale so Zoo fans should check back regularly.  Please note, orders may be delayed due to COVID-19 safety guidelines.
