Our Sponsors

Proceeds support the Amur Leopard Project at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo.
The Friends of the Zoo will dedicate proceeds toward its project to build a new Amur leopard habitat in the zoo’s former African lion exhibit. Last year, the zoo acquired a male and a female Amur leopard who are residing in temporary quarters in the Social Animals wing. It is estimated that only 84 Amur leopards remain in the wild in their native habitat, the Amur River Basin in Far East Russia.

The Rosamond Gifford Zoo is Syracuse’s accredited member of the AZA, the gold standard for animal care, conservation education and guest experience. The Friends of the Zoo exists to support the zoo in its missions of conservation, education and saving species.
