Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique is what experts call Africa's greatest restoration story, and in under a month, Zoo Boise will be contributing $2 million to the park's conservation efforts.

Liz Littman is the assistant director of Zoo Boise. She said, "We want to change the definition of what it means to be a zoo and why we have animals here. They're a great educational resource, it's a great day to come and have fun with your family but it's for a greater purpose that you can come to the zoo and help support animals in the wild."

With every dollar you spend, you're supporting a greater cause. The simple act of fun and adventure for your family is also helping endangered animals in other countries. How cool is that?! Even as a small zoo, Boise is making a huge impact.

Zoo Boise is one of the leading zoos in the country when it comes to the percentage of funds given to conservation efforts in other countries.

All you need to do to be a part of this great story, is visit with your family, have a really great day, feed the goats for a quarter and you're giving to conservation.
