C Como Zoo

One of only four free metro zoos in the country, Como Zoo’s exhibits offer noseto-nose encounters with the animals visitors most want to see. In 2009, Como Friends helped to underwrite new landscaping efforts across the Zoo, professional development opportunities for zoo staff, and operant conditioning training which has helped to improve the health and wellbeing of all the animals in Como’s care. Support from Como Friends also helped give the Primate Building its first facelift in 25 years—improving lighting, dampening noise, and engaging visitors with educational displays about primate conservation efforts worldwide. Total gifts to Como Zoo: $184,204
