Save our Stripes - Thursday, April 6, 2017, 6 p.m.

Toast to Conservation is 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.

Your journey begins with a sparkling libation and a stroll through our African Loop to visit with our special guests and our endangered, striped friends. From there take a short walk through the gardens to our award-winning Range of the Jaguar where you will be greeted by Zoo ambassadors and a cocktail reception followed by a gourmet sit down dinner under the stars. Following dinner, our guest speakers will inspire you with conservation messages both globally and locally, and have you uplifted in support of these important programs. The evening ends with a paddles up auction for conservation and live music for your listening enjoyment.
