COVID-19 has affected numerous businesses around the county, but let’s not forget about the Oakland Zoo and the animals that need us more than ever. Consider donating any amount to the Oakland Zoo Animal Care Fund.
The Oakland Zoo released this statement:
Oakland Zoo relies primarily on admissions-related revenue to ensure the animals that make your trips to the Zoo so special receive their meals and medical care. While our gates are closed to help slow the spread of COVID-19, the Zoo is losing the majority of its daily revenue. Despite this, all 750+ animals large and small, are being cared for by our dedicated and renowned animal care and veterinary teams.
The Zoo has served as a community anchor in Oakland for 98 years. There has never been a time when your donations have been more critical. We can’t wait to welcome you back to the Zoo when we can reopen. Thank you for supporting your community zoo in this time of need.
