presented by Tom Murphy and Family Thursday, February 11, 2021 from 6:00pm to 7:00pm
Animal Attractions, our first virtual fundraiser of 2021, is a steamy, fun-filled event discussing animals and their mating behaviors at the Zoo and in the wild.
Listen and chat with our Zoo experts as they talk about finding the right mate, species introductions and breeding successes! Our presenters will have 10 minutes each to share videos, photos and stories as well as answer questions from guests from the comfort of their homes. This will be an evening not to miss!
Each Zoom reservation will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a private golf cart tour with Dr. Chris Kuhar, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo Executive Director, and Sarah Crupi, Cleveland Zoological Society Executive Director. Additional raffle tickets may be purchased for $50.
Prior to the event on February 11, all reservations will receive an email with a Zoom event link and information on picking up your snack box (if applicable).
Proceeds from Animal Attractions will benefit the Zoo Society's annual fund.
Animal Attractions Presenters:
Dr. Chris Kuhar, Executive Director, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo
Andi Kornak, Deputy Executive Director and Director of Animal & Veterinary Programs, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo
Dr. Kristen Lukas, Director of Conservation & Science, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo

Illegal wildlife trade
A black market turned “big business” is consuming wildlife at unsustainable rates.
A beautiful new home
The Daniel Maltz Rhino Reserve more than doubles the space for the Zoo's Eastern black rhinos.
Food for thought
How does the Zoo get enough browse to feed these animals each and every day?
