Weather Insurance for Zoos

Why Zoos Need Weather Insurance
  • Minimize Risk

    Heat, cold, precipitation—these can all threaten zoo attendance and improvements. Don’t depend on the weather; instead, mitigate your weather-related risk with a guaranteed solution.

  • Protect Revenue

    Diminished attendance has an alarming ripple effect, affecting ticket sales, concessions and other revenue. With weather insurance, you can protect your bottom line no matter the forecast.

  • Customize Coverage

    Risk management isn’t one-size-fits-all. Instead, tell us your weather concerns and when you need coverage, and you’ll get a policy that meets your specific needs.

Weather Is Expensive—But It Doesn’t Have to Be

From general attendance and related revenue to timely completion of capital improvement projects, weather poses a variety of risks to zoos. Zoo operators and executives historically viewed adverse weather as simply a cost of doing business. Now, there’s a better solution.

We offer GuaranteedWeather, weather insurance that protects your zoo from weather risk. Policies are customized to your specific needs, including types of weather, the duration of coverage and other factors. Not all weather is catastrophic, but adverse weather can have a catastrophic effect on your zoo’s earnings. With GuaranteedWeather, you’ll have the risk management solution to not only protect your peace of mind, but also your bottom line.
