There are many ways the Houston Zoo works to help protect wildlife, habitats and people around the world. Our guests can be part of the Zoo’s efforts to save wildlife in any number of ways.
On September 21st and September 22nd, visit the Houston Zoo for the Rhino Spotlight on Species. The Rhino Spotlight on Species event is FREE with Zoo admission! Learn more about our rhinos at the Zoo and how rhinos are doing in the wild. Be part of this unique event and help save rhinos in the wild by donating a wildlife book at the Zoo between 10:00am and 3:00pm on either day.
Directly contribute to saving rhinos in the wild by bringing in a new or gently used book about wildlife to donate to our friends in the field who are protecting rhinos in Africa. These books will be used to educate local communities in Zimbabwe about their amazing wildlife!
Each person that donates a book will receive a rhino conservation bracelet AND a Houston Zoo Conservation Hero pin!
Book donation details:
- New or gently used
- Appropriate for ages 9-12 years
