We hope you are all doing well and get ready for the Holiday season! We have been busy here with our plans for our 2019 season! With that Today is Give to the Max Day in MN and we would love for your support for our nonprofit Guardians of Conservation.
Guardians of Conservation is working to guide the next generation down a lifelong path of animal conservation by bringing the world to their fingertips. Our younger generation may never get to see a rhino, giraffes, Bontebok, or Alpine Ibex as their populations are dwindling. Guardians of Conservation (GOC) finds this very disturbing to not have the young and all people understand the magnificence of a rhino, or truly understand how tall a giraffe is! They will never get the chance to appreciate what the role of a Bontebok or an Alpine Ibex has in our world. Furthermore, understand their importance to our ecosystem.
The Guardians of Conservation is a new 501 (C) (3) with the purpose of supporting endangered animal conservation and education efforts locally through Hemker Park & Zoo and around the world.
