  Statement From Wild Welfare on the Gaza Zoo:

 "Wild Welfare has been saddened to hear about the extremely distressing conditions for the animals caught in the crossfire between Israel and Hamas at the Gaza Zoo. Alongside the North Carolina Zoological Society, we managed to source a small donation to buy food for these animals, and have been investigating options to get aid to them. However, our research has revealed that militants have a history of using the zoo as an integral part of the war-zone, and our on-the ground sources have warned us that the situation is still extremely dangerous.


"We lack reliable information as to how many animals are still alive, and we have no established partners to help us plan or carry out a safe and effective food delivery operation. While we applaud the bravery of individual Gaza residents who are trying to help the zoo's animals, Wild Welfare has been unable to locate any contacts or infrastructure that would allow a safe, legal or effective way of getting food or other help to these animals. Until we have reasonable prospects for successfully reaching and helping these animals, we are not willing to put human lives at risk. 


We are obviously sad that we cannot help, but we will have the funds on standby if it becomes legally possible and responsible to take action in the future."

NC Zoo and Zoo Society Field Research Camp


After our successful, first-ever field research camp in August, the NC Zoo and Zoo Society are excited to offer a second camp in October 2014. This camp will run from October 18 to 19. 


 

Our field research camp allows young adults to spend two days and one unforgettable night exploring wildlife inside the NC Zoo’s field research arena.

Campers will engage in the same activities that guide the Zoo’s field biologists when they travel into wilderness to study and protect free-ranging elephants, gorillas, salamanders and more.
