Hey, Mom--what's this white stuff?
It's that time again--time to start building our snowball pile! We need your help to provide snow for the animals, 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 that 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!

Keeping Up with the Koalas
Cambee and other female koalas work extra hard when they become mothers. Not only do they carry their newborns in their pouch, but once their baby has outgrown that pouch, the joey still travels in style on Mom's back! Keepers and veterinarians watch these pairs very closely, making sure that each is thriving--and this means not only weighing the joey but also weighing mom! An accurate scale, meticulous record-keeping, and even an appropriate-sized bucket--these are simple but very important tools when collecting these valuable weights! Please show your support for our veterinary teams that look after our koala moms and all the animals at the Zoo and Safari Park by giving a $15 gift today!

What has spots and is cute all over?
Our cheetah cubs are six months old now and, thanks to our nursery and veterinary teams, these sisters thrived and quickly outgrew their playpen. To prepare the nursery's larger room for the cubs, animal care staff had to "kittenproof" the room in the same way that parents would prepare a house for a toddler--electrical sockets were blocked, electrical cords were taken away, and any small spaces or sharp corners were filled or covered with towels and blankets. Show your support for our veterinary teams that go above and beyond for our cheetah cubs and all the animals at the Zoo and Safari Park by giving a $15 gift today!

Hey, Dad! Do you want to play?
Our babirusa family is doing beautifully, with Fig's two piglets growing quickly! Some say that babirusas have a face only a mother could love, but their dad, Jethro, thinks they are pretty adorable, too! He can be seen engaging in their antics, following them around while they skip, jump, and snort. But just like moms, sometimes dads need a break, so enrichment items to distract the playful piglets is a welcome treat! Your gift of $20 will go toward feeder balls and more enrichment items for our piglets and the other energetic youngsters at the Zoo and the Safari Park!

They're having a ball!
Six cheetah siblings were born last year to mother Addison. As you can imagine, these big kids can get really rambunctious and sometimes Addison needs a little break. That is where much-needed enrichment items come in handy. Cheetah keepers will offer up new and exciting things to challenge and entertain these spotted siblings--and give their busy mom some much-needed "downtime." Your gift of $20 will go toward chew toys, tug-of-war ropes, and other enrichment items for our cheetah cubs and the other energetic youngsters at the Zoo and the Safari Park!
