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!” Â Our week-long fundraiser actually reached $3,300! Â All of the proceeds from this event will go to theÂ Lewa Wildlife ConservancyÂ andÂ Action for CheetahsÂ 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. Â 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.
