Hope you enjoyed all of our events in 2018! 


One of the things the Friends try to do is help protect the wild animals. Here is a program in the amazon that has a conservation for the Tapirs. Since we have the wonderful Tapir here at the zoo, we try to help others who help protect these great animals from going extinct. We have been closely related to this specific program for over 10 years in South America. Please click the link and learn about the program going on down there and if you can please make a donation. (this is similar to GoFundMe)
