Tablet - $350 (need 2)
Our Postdoctoral Research Team is in need of two tablets to monitor the behavior of animals and record important information. We are still discovering new and amazing things about animal behavior every day! These last two tablets will ensure that we have one for every animal department.

Nest Cams - $300 (buys 2 cameras- a need by two departments)

Our Herpetology and Primate Departments have requested these night vision cameras to monitor animals on birthwatch.


Greens Feeders - $250 (need 4)

Did you know our Animal Care Team members are also inventors and engineers? These metal feeders are specially designed for primate foraging by our Animal Care Team. Each one is custom fabricated. 


Prep Table - $216 (need 1)

The Primate team is looking to replace a table used for diet prep in our Small African Primate area. This stainless steel commercial work table will replace a well worn plastic table.


Great Ape Tank - $130 (need 4)

This 70-gallon tank will benefit all primate areas. Our Animal Care Team can fill them with water, bedding or toys for the primates to play and sleep in.

Outback Enrichment - $114 (need 2)

Alpacas and petting zoo goats and sheep will benefit from this innovative slow hay feeder to simulate both play and natural grazing.

Binoculars - $110 (need 2)

The Bird Care Team is requesting binoculars to monitor flamingos and Living Treehouse birds, as well as keep an eye on wild birds in the area.

Hoofstock Enrichment  - $105 (always in need)

$105 will buy special puzzle feeders and enrichment for giraffes and zebras for use in their indoor areas. This will cover the cost of specially-designed tubes, boards, balls, and trays that test their skills with "tongue twister" obstacles to promote natural foraging behaviors while having fun and getting treats!

Hornbill Mirrors  - $70 (need 1)

Ground hornbills love to see themselves in the mirror. The Bird Care Team is requesting two unbreakable mirrors made from polished 20-gauge stainless steel. 

Elephant Enrichment - $50 (always in need)
Have you seen the enrichment items hanging from the roof of our elephant habitat? The elephants love to stretch overhead to play with wind chimes, hanging puzzle feeders, PVC pipes and cargo nets of hay. By purchasing this item, you are helping to keep enrichment in the sky and our pulley systems in working order.

Scent Enrichment - $27 (always in need)

Our Carnivore Team is running low on our supply of scents (colognes, perfumes, spices etc). The big cats, fossa and giant pandas are very sensory-oriented. Being able to provide a wide variety of sensory opportunities is one way we keep everyone mentally enriched. This will purchase Zoo-approved scents with high-quality ingredients that the animals love!

Bird Mirrors  - $26 (need 5)

Like our ground hornbills, other birds would love to see themselves in a mirror. Our Bird Care Team is requesting six 12-inch-by-12-inch shatterproof mirrors for smaller birds.

Jumbo Hide Box - $25 (always in need)

Reptiles and amphibians tend to be shy creatures. Providing them with easy-to-clean, reusable hides gives them a nice safe refuge to get out of sight in while in their behind-the-scenes areas. Multiple sizes allow us to provide just the right size to make a happy hiding herp! This item is always in need by our Herpetology Team and our Ambassador Animal Team.
