Join us for “Party for the Planet” at the zoo this April!

Many wild animals are endangered by snare traps, which can hurt and kill them. This includes the little known saola. Catching Hope is a non-profit that takes these snares out of the wild and sends them to zoos. Volunteers use the snares to make keychains and other crafts that are then sold.

At Party for the Planet, we will support this cause by making keychains. Attendees will have the opportunity to create a keychain. They can also purchase or donate their keychain to support Catching Hope and saolas. All the wire from the keychains are from snares taken out of the wild. There will also be discovery stations around the zoo with animals that may be caught in these snares.
