Honoring Our Donors

The Hutchinson Zoo (Kansas) recently opened a new exhibit for their ocelot, Nico. Buhler Elementary school students (below, l to r) Ava, Valerie, Bailey and Claudia designed and sold bookmarks to raise money for ocelots and awareness of ocelot conservation at the zoo. In turn the Friends of Hutchinson Zoo matched the amount raised and made a donation to the Friends of LANWR to support the Ocelot Conservation Program.
