The Pantanal

South America’s Pantanal is a lush wetland environment inhabited by a stunning variety of species including jaguars, capybaras, giant river otters, giant anteaters, and tapirs. The Houston Zoo provides salaries and support for our conservation partners to conduct research, educate and engage local people, and find solutions to protect wildlife.

The Wildlife Conservation Gala

We’re joining together with Houston Zoo supporters and wildlife enthusiasts like you at this year’s Gala to protect animals in the Pantanal, Brazil. All proceeds will go directly to conservation projects in the Pantanal and around the world.

We’re flying in two of our conservation project partners, Dr. Arnaud Desbiez and Dr. Patricia Medici, from Brazil, so that you can meet them and hear about the work we do together to protect wildlife in the Pantanal.

Your generous support will make this evening a success. For questions, please contact Ginger Moon at 713.533.6584 or gmoon@houstonzoo.org.
