FUNdraising for American Association of Zoo KeepersWe are so excited to help support the American Association of Zoo keepers (AAZK) with our Moonlit Safari Painting it Forward event!! The AAZK is a wonderful organization that provides resources for zookeepers and animal care professionals. They strive to encourage quality animal care by making the latest resources and techniques available as well as aiding promotion in conservation efforts. This event, will be shedding light on the conservation of rhinos and elephants in particular, hence the elephant themed painting.
Proceeds from this event go to the KC Zoo AAZK (American Association of Zookeepers) chapter who will pay it forward to Lewa Wildlife Conservancy (Kenya), International Rhino Foundation, and Action for Cheetahs (Kenya). AAZK members will also have touchable African animal artifacts and hold drawings for elephant t-shirts.
Guest speaker Teresa Randall of the Kansas City Zoo, will speak a little bit about their efforts at our local zoo as well as demonstrating a show and tell of African animal artifacts. We are really grateful for this opportunity to work with AAZK and look forward in your participation in this event as well.

This event will be hosted on Saturday, September 29th from 7-9 PM at our Prairie Village location.
