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!

Striped and Sophisticated
To continue our Centennial Birthday Bash, our tiger trio--Connor, Berani, and Cinta--will be celebrated in style on July 16. These largest of all big cats actually prefer the finer things in life--exotic spices and novel scents--and might choose to dab some behind their ears or shamelessly flop on their backs and roll themselves silly--we'll have to wait and see! Your gift of $5 will go toward this fragrant feline fiesta and other Centennial Birthday Bashes we're throwing throughout the year at the San Diego Zoo! (Dates and location subject to change.)

Birthday Bash for Bear Brothers
Our Centennial Birthday Celebrations continue! On July 9, our grizzly bear brothers, Scout and Montana, will be showered with goodies. With your support, their exhibit will be decorated with fun things such as new Boomer Balls® to play with, fresh sand to play in, and--what they look forward to most--new toys to destroy! Your gift of $10 will go toward party favors for our brother bear bonanza and other Centennial Birthday Bashes we're throwing throughout the year at the San Diego Zoo! (Dates and location subject to change.)

How Do Snow Leopards Celebrate?
On July 16 we will find the answer! That is the day when our snow leopards will be celebrated during our Centennial Birthday Bash. These cool cats know how to have fun but most enjoy celebrating with a new place to lounge--like fresh mulch, soft grass, or smooth sand. Your gift of $15 will go toward new substrate and bedding items for our snow leopard shindig and other Centennial Birthday Bashes we're throwing throughout the year at the San Diego Zoo! (Dates and location subject to change.)

These neighbors are party animals!
The fabulous felines of Elephant Odyssey--our lions and our jaguars--are neighbors but on June 25 they will be birthday buddies, too! Although our lions typically hang out in the south exhibit, they do have the option to swap with the jaguars and visit the other side--with careful keeper choreography, of course! These cats not only rotate exhibits but they also trade their toys--so your birthday gift will provide double the fun! Your gift of $20 will go toward playful party favors for these big cat neighbors and for other Centennial Birthday Bashes we're throwing throughout the year at the San Diego Zoo! (Dates and location subject to change.)

Time for an Upgrade!
Although rotary phones may still work, the world is much easier to navigate with a mobile phone. Our Zoo Veterinary Services Department is currently feeling "behind in the times" by using an antiquated cautery unit that is almost 20 years old! While this current unit is an integral part of many surgical procedures, our hospital team is unable to use many new electrocautery features. A new unit will perform all the functions of the current model, plus give our veterinary staff the ability to use cautery during endoscopy and laparoscopy procedures. This state-of-the-art cautery unit costs $16,837 and features high-frequency, smart technology creating voltage arcs capable of producing coagulation in sensitive tissues at a deeper level than older technology units.
