A grand occasion for celebrations--100 years young!
Our keepers are always looking for a reason to party--and what better reason than to celebrate the animals! Cardboard tubes, new scents and hammocks, frozen treats, and decorative boxes with prizes inside are fun for everyone. During each Centennial Birthday Bash, our awesome keepers--wearing their own Centennial party hats!--will be placing the new items received from the Wish List on exhibit for the animals to enjoy and for all to see. Your gift of $9 will go toward future Centennial Birthday Bashes we're hosting throughout the year at the San Diego Zoo!

It's snowing in San Diego!
It's that time again--time to start building our snowball pile! We need your help to provide snow for the animals in our collection, and once we have enough snowballs, some lucky animals at the Zoo or the Park will receive a winter wonderland! Snow is not a common sight here in San Diego--so I don't know who enjoys it more, the animals who get to romp around in it or the keepers and guests who get to watch their antics! Purchase one snowball for $10 each and you can say that you helped animals at the San Diego Zoo and Safari Park experience the magic of snow throughout the year!

Oh, the places we'll go!
Our keepers certainly are creative when it comes to feeding the animals, and you can help raise their talents to new heights with pulleys! These pulleys may be little but they make a huge difference to the animals by getting browse and feeding devices hung in new areas that are generally out of reach of keepers. Our giraffes, monkeys, and birds will benefit from this new system that gives them exciting new opportunities to forage and hang out in novel places! Your gift of $5 will provide pulleys as wells as other electronics and gadgets for our keepers at the San Diego Zoo and Safari Park.

Agility Training 101
Our nursery keepers are quite crafty! Occasionally, there is a newborn hoofed stock that needs to be nursed back to health--and once the baby is strong enough to go outside for some playtime, our keepers build agility courses for them! Your gift of $15 will provide supplies that the nursery keepers at the San Diego Zoo and Safari Park will use to make all-terrain courses for the goats, sheep, and other hoofed stock youngsters to test their mobility, challenge their balance, and strengthen their "sea legs" before going out with the rest of their group in the great, big world!

Hide and Seek and Pounce!
Nothing says "party" like games--and our Amur and Snow leopards sure know how to play! One of their favorite games is to stalk paper bags and cardboard boxes--then fly out of nowhere and pounce on them! Your gift of $15 will go toward treats for our playful leopards and other Centennial Birthday Bashes we're throwing throughout the year at the San Diego Zoo!

Splash! Oh, no!
Pools and hoses and drinkers--oh, my! Water is a keeper's best friend--and, of course, animals love it, too! Cameras, on the other hand, do not love water. Used as an important communication tool, cameras are needed to share animal photos and videos between other keepers and veterinarians. This visual information is invaluable to animal care but the digital cameras we use now are outdated and not waterproof--this is where you can help! Your gift of $20 will provide waterproof digital cameras as well as other electronics and gadgets for our keepers at the San Diego Zoo and Safari Park.

Your gift of $25 will go toward party favors for our crash of rhinos and other Centennial Birthday Bashes we're throwing throughout the year at the San Diego Zoo!

What's all the buzz about?
Our BEE-hive volunteers are making lives better for gibbons, lion-tailed macaques, and swamp monkeys by building state-of-the-art, 3-story bamboo structures. Each of these custom suites is made with a specially designed roof to relax out of the sun and rain with multiple balconies for lounging--only the best for our animals! What costs so much to make these? The main ingredient--stainless steel hardware! Your donation of $25 will keep our "BEE-hive" stocked with stainless steel hardware and other popular supplies our enrichment volunteers need at the Zoo and Safari Park.

Let It Snow--All Year Long!
With their exhibit renovation almost complete, our polar bears are enjoying a new shade structure, new boulders, logs, and stumps, and yards of sand, mulch, and topsoil. But they would like one more housewarming gift! We have funded half of the $50,000 needed--and are asking for one more generous gift of $25,000 in order to provide our polar bears with a high-tech ice flake machine to ensure that our "snow bears" can receive a frozen flurry whenever they dream of one--how cool!
