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!

Put the Snow in Snow Leopard!
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--even during summer! 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!

Our cuddly clusters of koalas may not look that excited about their birthday--but, believe me, these sleepy balls of cuteness are dreaming of the goodies they will be receiving!

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!

Party Crashers!
Did someone say party? Although mellow Jeezan is still helping shy Jiyu come out of his shell, our rhino boys really are the ultimate party crashers and are counting the days until their August celebration. 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!

Is Dinner Ready Yet?
Animals are creatures of habit and can practically tell time when it comes to their meals--listening for the dinner bell long before it's rung. To break up this routine and to add a little "spice" to the day, our keepers would like to use automatic feeders in the exhibits--dispensing treats at random times keeps our animals stimulated and not focused on the sound of their keeper's keys in the door! Your gift of $30 could provide automatic feeders as well as other useful gadgets and electronics for our keepers at the Zoo and the Safari Park!

Our Superheroes At Work!
At every available opportunity, we try to highlight our veterinary teams--the unsung heroes who fly around behind the scenes protecting our precious animals. Our animal hospital heroes always welcome an extra fuzzy blanket for their smallest patients or a special baby bottle for a big newborn--like our newest addition to our takin herd, a bouncing baby girl named Hsi Hsi (pronounced "CEE-CEE"), which means "playful monkey" in Chinese. Your gift of $40 will go toward blankets, bottles, and much, much more for the Zoo and Safari Park veterinary hospitals!

Keep Our BEE-hive Buzzing
To create enrichment items for our animals, Zoo and Safari Park volunteers need an ever-changing variety of tools and supplies. These items might include drill bits, burlap sacks, paint, glue, and much more! Our volunteers know firsthand that not all enrichment items can be purchased at the store, so many special enrichment items are handmade--and always keeper approved--to ensure the safety of the animals. Your $45 donation will keep our "BEE-hive" stocked for whatever requests the enrichment volunteers receive at the Zoo and the 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!
