Go Fund Me Burglary Recovery Fund
On the night of July 3-4, a burglary resulted in excess of $25,000 dollars in losses to the Zoo. Burglars caused extensive damage to Zoo facilities and installations, and made off with office electronics, cash, and equipment used to monitor and care for its animals. Please help the zoo recover from this tragic event by making a donation today and sharing this site with your friends and colleagues. Thank you to Lyra Kalish Swinney, a member of The Junior League of Austin, for generously creating this "Go Fund Me" page.
