We're Hoofin' It!

Help us get a leg up for the big move!

The Zoological Society's goal this year is to raise money to enhance the new African hoofstock building and yards. The bongos, impalas, yellow-backed duiker and zebras will be moving to a larger area adjacent to the African elephants' new
home. It is a quieter part of the Zoo and will hopefully be conducive to breeding for our herds of African hoofstock. The Zoo is hoping to add African Crowned Cranes and possibly a new species of African hoofstock to the group.

Our wish list includes:

  • Purchasing a hoofstock examination chute to allow for routine hoof exams, health monitoring and dispensing medications without the need to use anesthesia.
  • Constructing stalls for the hoofstock and adding an indoor area for African Crowned Cranes, which will be new to the group.
  • Installing special flooring in the building (similar to our giraffe indoor area) that is soft, easy to clean and gentle on the legs of the animals.
  • Placing feeding stations in the grassy yard areas.
  • Buying new tools needed to take care of the animals' hooves.
  • Building enrichment items such as puzzle feeders and browse planters for the animals.
