Feed Your Wild Life Conservation Gala

Once, hundreds of thousands of rhinos wandered the wilds of Africa and Asia. Now, fewer than 30,000 are left on the entire planet. Their dwindling population is under severe threat due to the illegal trade of rhino horn, which is still believed in some cultures to have medicinal properties. Rhino horn has even been confiscated at our own Houston port! This beautiful animal faces large-scale illegal poaching and is in urgent need of protection.

Join the Houston Zoo for our annual Feed Your Wild Life Conservation Gala on October 20, 2016 and help us protect rhinos. With the ongoing support from the Conservation Gala, the Houston Zoo has contributed more than $7.5 million over the last five years to successful efforts that have helped protect wildlife and wild places.
