Hurricane Harvey Relief
Houston Zoo Hurricane Harvey Employee Relief Fund
Although the storm has moved on, most of Houston is still reeling in Hurricane Harvey’s aftermath. The entire Houston Zoo team is humbled by the concern and support shown by this community, and we could not be more proud of our fellow Houstonians as the city begins to recover.
Throughout the storm, the animals at the Zoo were safe and secure in their barns and night houses and cared for by a dedicated crew of team members who stayed at the Zoo for the duration of the weather event. However, many of our team members were affected by this catastrophe. We have launched an employee relief fund to help our team members who need assistance during this difficult time.
AZA Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund
The Association of Zoos and Aquariums and its members are dedicated to helping accredited zoos and aquariums, and their affected employees, touched by Hurricane Harvey. While the damage at the facilities ranges in severity, many AZA member zoo and aquarium employees have been impacted by this catastrophic event and require assistance. AZA has set up a relief fund for our community to help our members’ staff and their families rebuild. Please consider donating today!
