The Rosamond Gifford Zoo is entrusted to care for some of the most vulnerable animals. I have been impressed with the Zoo's commitment to conservation, education and community engagement. It is my hope that our community will find inspiration and enjoyment in all that the zoo has to offer.

Conservation efforts like the ones the Rosamond Gifford Zoo engage in everyday are the reason I support them and their mission to ensure all wildlife can thrive.

Our world is facing many challenges and conservation education a way to give a voice to animals who are threatened or endangered. The Rosamond Gifford Zoo's Species Survival Program speaks that language, and that is one reason I support their efforts.

I support the Rosamond Gifford Zoo because it is an excellent place for the community to learn about conservation of animals in an interactive way. My family and I love all of the Zoo events, from Boo at the Zoo to the new winter holiday events. We are so thankful to have the Zoo in our community!
