GO HOG WILD,
WE’RE BUILDING A NEW WARTHOG HABITAT!
#GivingTuesday inspires people to take collective action to improve their communities by giving back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they believe in. It demonstrates how every act of generosity counts and means even more when we give together.
This year, you can help the non-profit Phoenix Zoo build a new habitat for our African warthogs, as part of The Pride Campaign, Africa Trail expansion. Guests will go “hog wild” over the fascinating warthogs’ renovated and expanded habitat.
Warthogs are environmental engineers and play a critical role in African grassland ecosystems. They have large protective pads on their faces and padded areas on their legs that allow them to kneel and eat short grasses; excavating the landscape, which can help smaller species utilize the grassland habitat. With a face only a mother could love, warthogs are among the more interesting mammals of Africa.
With current commitments, we are at 92% of the $13.9 million Pride Campaign.
Thank you for supporting the Phoenix Zoo and helping provide experiences that inspire people and motivate them to care for the natural world.
