Our first-ever Art Gallery Fundraiser is coming up at Oakland Zoo! All artwork will be nature-related at this silent auction.

Please nominate a US-based organization that you would like to receive the proceeds from this event by the 21st. The organization does not need to be for a specific species, just about conservation.  Post your nomination on our Facebook page or email us!

Nominations will be sent out in an email for anonymous voting on the 22nd. More details soon. Thanks everyone!

We Surpassed Our KFR Goal!

by on Aug.05, 2014, under Uncategorized

We know it wasn’t easy dedicating National Zoo Keeper Week into a selfless fundraiser to conserve wildlife, but our dedication to protecting species no matter what time of the year is what makes us passionate animal professionals.

Thank you for kicking rhino poacher butt and helping us surpass our $3,000 goal for “Kicking for Rhinos!”  Our week-long fundraiser actually reached $3,300!  All of the proceeds from this event will go to the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy and Action for Cheetahs in Kenya to protect habitat, support its rangers, and purchase equipment.

The participation in this fundraiser really speaks volumes about our chapter and the amazing professionals that helped us reach this point.  Thank you again for making time for conservation and helping us not only reach our monetary goal, but also our collective goal as animal keepers to protect wildlife.
