On Tue., Sept. 10, the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association announced a special evening for the members of their elite group of donors known as the Safari Club. The spectacular Sunset Safari, hosted at the L.A. Zoo on Sept. 28, 2013, promises an evening featuring up close and personal interactions with African and South American wildlife through keeper talks, animal feedings, training demonstrations and strolling animal walkabouts.
This special evening, just one of the many Safari Club benefits, will also feature the Tom Mankiewicz Conservation Carousel, a buffet dinner, international music and more.
Safari Club is GLAZA's premiere upper-level giving society with donations starting at $1,500. Donors have numerous opportunities throughout the year for encounters with exotic animals, meetings and discussions with the Zoo Director and curators and learning the latest in wildlife research and conservation from experts in the field.
Safari Club members believe strongly in the L.A. Zoo’s mission to inspire an appreciation of wildlife through animal exhibits and education, to ensure the highest level of animal welfare and to support programs that preserve biodiversity and conserve natural habitats. On a local level, their support helps underwrite the Zoo’s general operations, education and outreach programs and exhibit enhancements for its animal population. Globally, they contribute to the Zoo’s dozens of international conservation and breeding programs, offering hope of recovery for many of the earth’s endangered species.
