Featured Member: The Lebig Family

We love our Members. Their incredible support allows us to make a difference to animals both locally and all over the world. This month, we’re spotlighting a family that deserves recognition. We’re thrilled to introduce you to June’s Featured Members: The Lebig Family.

We reached out to The Lebig Family (Andrew, Sally and Pierre) to share a few words about being Zoo Members for their first year.

Sally Lebig says, “We value time together as a family and there is no better way to spend it than at the Houston Zoo. This is our first year as parents and our first year as Members. The look on our son’s face when we feed the giraffes is absolutely priceless. The staff is always so kind to our son and make sure he is entertained. Our son is learning new words and learned how to say “bubbles” when he saw bubbles being blown from a Zoo Staff Member. We go to the Zoo as a family and live in Katy. When we ‘come to town’ we always try to invite friends and family with our Family Premium Membership as the Houston Zoo is always a great place to catch up – that is a great benefit.”

The Lebig Family has enjoyed their first year of Membership so much that they renewed early for the coming year. As their son grows older, the Zoo will be a great opportunity for them to explore new areas of the Zoo as a family. From feeding the giraffes to seeing the new gorilla exhibit, it has been a great learning experience and they look forward to continuing to support the Zoo efforts.

From all of us here at the Houston Zoo, we want to say thank you to The Lebig Family and all of our Zoo Members. As a Houston Zoo Member, your support truly makes an impact on the growth of our zoo and our conservation efforts. THANKS!

SMG is another reason why Houston Zoo is the best Zoo!

Ok, it took me a minute to get this. I was literally zooming in to try to find the mouse. 🤦🏻‍♀️🙄😂

Cindy Christina Angela Ramirez see I told y’all! Lol

I fell for the mouse thing too..

“Baby it’s cold outside!”

That's nothing! Talk to keepers from the northern states or Canada!

i was honestly looking for a mouse lol

Johnnie R. Summerlin, cool, see the "stalagm ice"?

Brrrr. It’s cold out there! We have made the decision to close the Houston Zoo tomorrow, Wednesday, Jan. 17. Don’t worry, the animals are safe and warm in their night houses!

A limited number of staff from departments like Animal Programs, Safety and Security and Operations/Facilities will be onsite to perform essential services and have the Zoo ready for us to reopen Thursday morning.

A big ol' high-five to our awesome team members who braved this icy cold to come in and care for our animals and zoo facilities.
