Servals in Sight!

Monday, May 6th, 2013

We are home to three Servals: Nsomi, Satchel, and Simba. Servals are cats who dwell in the savannas of Africa. The Serval is one of the most distinctive felines on the African continent with its spotted and striped fur and long limbs giving it the appearance of a small Cheetah.

Our Servals are presently off display to the public. In order to introduce our Servals to our guests, we will need to construct a new habitat for them. The site is already chosen, now all we need is help from our friends. Your donation will bring us closer to making our dream a reality. You may make a donation with Visa or Mastercard over the phone (512 288 1490), by sending a check in the mail, on our website using our PayPal link, or in person at the Zoo. We have several donation tiers available.

Platinum $1,000.00 – Your name prominently displayed on a plaque on our Serval habitat, an invitation to a reception and a sneak preview of our Serval habitat prior to our grand opening, a one hour private tour for four (subject to schedule availability) and an Austin Zoo t-shirt.
