This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Support the Elmwood Park Zoo this winter by making a donation to our Winter Care Appeal. Your tax deductible donation will help us get through the lean winter months and allow us to prepare for the 2014 season.

This year, for the first time in our 90-year history, Elmwood Park Zoo was home to two giant giraffes. These tall beauties were a huge hit, drawing a record breaking crowd of over 300,000 guests and eating nearly 10,000 pounds of food in just five months!

The Zoo also added over 40 other animals to it’s collection this year including capybaras, squirrel monkeys, chicken breeds, donkeys, and various education animals. These additions are not only a huge accomplishment, but a huge expense! In fact, our diet bill increased by 35%!

Please consider contributing to Elmwood Park Zoo’s future growth through a donation to the Winter Care Appeal.
