2016 tiger ornament

The Zoo's male red panda can "Dash" right onto your Christmas tree and into your heart. This year's Zoological Society ornament commemorates red panda couple Dash and Dr. Erin Curry. The two prefer winter and love to play in the snow. Red pandas were built for colder climates. In the wild, red pandas can be found in the mountains of Nepal, Myanmar and central China. While you may cuddle under a blanket during a winter evening, red pandas wrap their bushy tails around their bodies to stay warm. If red pandas make you smile, then make sure you purchase this year's ornament. The handcrafted, pewter ornament is created by local Wisconsin artist Andy Schumann. This is the Zoological Society's 27th ornament.

The cost of each ornament is $14, which includes postage, mailing materials and 5.6% WI sales tax. You also can order individual past ornaments ($14 each) or the whole collection of 27 for $324 and save $54 (limited-time offer). Proceeds assist the Zoological Society in providing support to the Milwaukee County Zoo’s animals. This purchase is not tax-deductible.
