Tony Bright has personally funded the entire zoo. He never wanted to be open to the public. But was asked by many locals to make facilities where public could learn.


He is still funding for the zoo that is not profitable and won’t be for a while. He has been asked by many to change to non profit so they could donate. If anyone knows Tony, they know he has never taken money without earning it

Building a new giraffe barn and new giraffe yard, plus purchasing a female is going to be a huge financial drain on our zoo. Our zoo receives zero outside money. We are closed in the winter months which means zero income from December 1st to March 15. The cost to build this and bring in 1 female is going to be at least $150,000. If we raise that $150,000 by the end of the year we will make a promise that ALF will never leave Brights Zoo.

Janice Paulsen Guazzo We were neighbors for years when the zoo was not open to the public. My kids learned so much and loved visiting when they could. We moved away for a few years but then back to WNC. The first trip we took was to Jonesborough to see the zoo again. They were so lucky to have this experience in their own backyard. Thank you for all you do.
