Each Thanksgiving season we try our best to put into words just how grateful we are for your friendship and support. With your passion for saving wildlife and wild spaces, with your generous support in providing the most nutritious diets and state-of-the-art animal health care, and most of all your love for each and every creature here at the zoo—we are incredibly lucky to call you our zoo family.
If we could invite you all to a Thanksgiving feast we would, but unfortunately the animals might get grumpy if we start sharing their grub. Instead, here is a little Thanksgiving-inspired fun to share with your loved ones. This holiday, know we are thinking of you and sending you love from the zoo. Stay cozy and enjoy your pie!
Here are 10 ways to give thanks (like an animal):
Be thankful for family, young and old (and everyone in between).
The earth provides us with nutrient-rich soil to literally grow our food. It doesn't get much better than that! Remember to thank the earth (the worms, the rain and the dirt!).
Be yourself, let loose. Give yourself gratitude for what makes you, you!
Show your family and friends you care by taking the time to ask them questions. And really listen. Those quirky stories make your family special!
One of the simplest ways to show thanks is feeding others. Consider volunteering at a local food bank or donating items to a food drive at your grocery store.
