Quarters for Conservation
Daily visitors to the zoo will notice that 2013 admission prices have been raised 25 cents. This increase has been earmarked by our board of directors to be used for wildlife conservation purposes on a local, national or global basis. This is the first step in raising the profile of your zoo’s commitment to conservation.
Zoo members will be able to get on the bandwagon as well, as our 2013 membership renewal forms and onsite purchase materials will include the opportunity for you to make a contribution to the Quarters for Conservation fund.
Quarters for Conservation funds will be distributed to conservation organizations, programs and projects selected by the zoo’s conservation and scientific research committee. Programs that will benefit from these funds will include those involved in wildlife conservation and management, habitat restoration, conservation education and scientific research in zoology, biology, habitat, and endangered species conservation.
