The Birmingham Zoo is inviting the community to join us in helping with the aftermath of the Australian bushfire crisis by visiting the Zoo on Valentine’s weekend, February 14-16, 2020. Paying guests during these days will have funds from their paid admission ticket donated to the Zoo and Aquarium Association, Australasia (ZAA), a sister organization to the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), for increased aid to wildlife affected by wildfires. Birmingham Zoo will be matching up to $5,000 from paid admissions on that weekend with the goal of donating a total gift of $20,000 to support the wildlife of Australia.
Birmingham Zoo is encouraging anyone wanting to contribute and help in the relief efforts to donate to the Zoo and Aquarium Association, Australasia (ZAA) Wildlife Conservation Fund (WCF). All funds raised will be used for critical care and long term recovery, restoration and rehabilitation of Australian wildlife.
