Cleveland Metroparks Zoo to dedicate the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Welcome Pavilion

Posted: May 31, 2018

On Tuesday, June 5, the Cleveland Zoological Society will host a dedication ceremony of the new Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Welcome Pavilion at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo.

This new facility, located at the entrance to the Zoo, will feature videos about the Zoo's Future for Wildlife conservation programs, as well as the Quarters for Conservation donation station that allows the Zoo's 1 million visitors to strengthen their conservation awareness.

“We are so pleased to support Cleveland Metroparks Zoo’s efforts to engage the community in learning about animals in Ohio and conservation efforts around the world,” said Morton Mandel, Chairman and CEO of the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Foundation. “Each trip a child makes to the Zoo can help them connect with nature and teach them the importance of protecting and conserving wild spaces.”

Cleveland Metroparks Zoo has been committed to wildlife conservation for more than 20 years and has contributed more than $7.5 million to wildlife conservation efforts around the world in partnership with the Cleveland Zoological Society. In 2017, the Zoo dedicated more than $600,000 to global wildlife conservation efforts.

“The Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Welcome Pavilion will show all of our guests the connection between their favorite animals and the great conservation and education programs that the Zoo offers,” said Zoo Executive Director Christopher Kuhar, Ph.D. “These mission-based programs are the heart of the Zoo and provide an inspirational connection between the people of northeast Ohio and animals all over the world. We are grateful to the Mandel Foundation for its generosity and encouragement to make conservation more visible — right from the moment our guests arrive.”
