Woodland Park Zoo's annual spring fundraiser, Thrive, brings together more than 600 Puget Sound region business and community leaders, giving them an "inside glimpse" into what makes our institution a world-class zoo. Join us March 8th 2016 to learn how our zoo is protecting animals and their habitats around the world.
Did you know that golden retrievers get breast cancer? So do jaguars, kangaroos and beluga whales!
Our guest speaker, Dr. Barbara Natterson-Horowitz, is a Professor of Medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. Her book Zoobiquity springs from a simple but revelatory fact: Animals and humans get the same diseases. Zoobiquity explores how animal and human commonality can be used to diagnose, treat, and heal patients of all species.
Thrive guests will discover how Woodland Park Zoo’s style of animal care, conservation and education is a unique, holistic approach to promoting the health of our planet. Through monitoring local wildlife, innovating new veterinary techniques and promoting conservation projects around the world, Woodland Park Zoo’s staff, have some fascinating stories to share about how connected we really are to the animals and landscapes of our globe.
