Black bear

NOVEMBER 27, 2018

Help our rescued Florida black bear settle in with “housewarming gifts”! Enrichment items like scent balls, “tipsy toys” and feed dispensers will help keep her stimulated and encourage the expression of natural behaviors. Best of all, you’ll be able to see your gift in action when the habitat opens early next year. We are bear-y grateful for your generosity!

#GivingZOOday, in partnership with #GivingTuesday, celebrates the impact zoos and aquariums have on their communities by engaging visitors to be stewards of the environment and saving species from extinction. It’s also about how these institutions give back by mentoring their staff and volunteers to support a wide range of causes.
