This year marks the 22nd Anniversary of ExZOOberation at the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens, the event where guests are invited to help end extinction. 2017 marks a completely new ExZOOberation with a revamp of the timeless gala. Thanks to the support of corporate partners and friends of the zoo, ExZOOberation 2016 raised over $225,000. The funds raised allow the Zoo to have a greater impact on conservation locally and across the globe.
At this year’s ExZOOberation, experience the Zoo in an impactful evening of music, movement and message. Learn about the conservation projects the Zoo supports through a cocktail safari. Dance the night away and delight in the gardens in the Range of the Jaguar and the Gardens of Trout River.
Leading up to ExZOOberation is Toast to Conservation, an exciting new event generating awareness and funding for the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens, and global conservation programs supported by the Zoo. This year’s event includes speakers from around the globe, including world-renowned paleoanthropologist and wildlife conservationist Dr. Richard Leakey.
