Thermography Camera - $10,000 (need 1)

Per the Vet Team: "A helpful diagnostic tool to look for and localize inflammation.  This tool is fantastic for non-invasively assessing animals from a distance in their own environment, and it is particularly useful for our biggest patients such as elephants and giraffe."

  Surgery Table - $3,700 (need 1)

This will replace the current table which is not functioning well. It will be used for sterile surgical procedures in the Vet Clinic for smaller and medium-sized patients. 


Portable Incubator/brooder - $675 (1 for Bird Team and 1 for Ambassador Animals)

The Bird Team has requested a portable incubator for moving fertile incubated eggs between areas in the Zoo and to other zoos as the need arrises. The Animal Ambassador team is also requesting this item for a new species of lizard. The team needs this to transport the lizard to schools, libraries and other educational programs.


Crate Training Equipment - $525 (need 3)

Our Primate Team has requested specially designed kennels for animal well-being training exercises with monkeys and lemurs. Much like when your dog or cat needs to be transported to see a vet, we also train the smaller primates to use crates or kennels. These special kennels are constructed of heavy-duty materials and include a safety door.

Tree Stand - $520 (need 1)

This is a giant handmade tree stand that is cut from a single piece of wood. It provides several hooks and eyes to hang enrichment and will be utilized for playtime and programs with Ambassador Birds, including the stars of our bird show- our parrots. 


Microchip Scanner - $280 (need 2)

This is a universal reader for microchip identifiers. This will allow the Vet Team to confirm the ID for any animal with any type of microchip identification.


Bird Scales - $175 (need 2)

These scales are needed for weighing flamingos, kori bustands and cranes. Birds are being trained to voluntarily step on the scale when asked by a member of our Animal Care Team. 

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!

Elephant Enrichment - $50 (always in need)
Have you seen the enrichment items hanging in the 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.

Primate Enrichment - $30 (Need 6)
We need items such as steel brackets and other mounting tools to safely attach enrichment to primate areas.

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.
