Annual Fund - Spring 2018

You are the Wind Beneath our Wings

We are deeply grateful to the donors who brought Birds in Flight to the Zoo. This special production brings people and free-flying birds together to demonstrate the Zoo's commitment to conservation and to animal health and well-being.

The birds that come and go during this program do so without constraints. They participate freely because the program's script honors their natural history and its trainers use only positive rewards and trust to interact with the animals. This commitment to knowledge and respect beats at the heart of the Zoo's relationship with all of nature and exists, in part, because of the generous support the Zoo receives from donors and the citizens of North Carolina.

This funding gives the Zoo the resources it needs to ensure exemplary care of its animals and to carry its caring into the wilderness to protect endangered species—elephants in Cameroon, Gorillas in Nigeria, and Gopher Frogs in the Sandhills.

We hope that you will consider supporting the Zoo's programs and values by donating to the Zoo Society's annual fund. Your gift will help the Zoo continue its commitment to animal well-being and to conserve wildlife at home and around the world. Thank you for helping us protect wildlife and nature.
