Help us purchase sturdy, zoo-tough enrichment items for the larger animals at Bear Hollow Zoo in Athens, GA. Enrichment items like food puzzles and toys stimulate natural behaviors such as foraging, curiosity, and play.
Donate directly to this campaign using the button below, or visit our table to donate at zoo events such as the Bears’ Birthday Party on Saturday, March 19. We’ll have some special birthday gifts for the bears: thanks to donations received so far, we’ve been able to purchase two of the items on the zoo’s enrichment wish list: a feeder tube and a sturdy mirror!
But much more is needed: please donate today!
You can also help us raise funds with some friendly competition! Click Fundraise at the top of the campaign page to start your own fundraising team for this project. Spread the word on your social media and invite your friends to donate and share!
Items shown are examples of the types of enrichment items that we may purchase. Our actual purchases will be made in consultation with zoo staff and will depend on animal needs and available funds. Your donation to this Friends of Bear Hollow campaign will support purchase of enrichment items and shipping. Up to 10% of donations to this campaign may be used for Friends of Bear Hollow, Inc. administrative expenses.
