Each month we feature a new charity to share with our readers in hopes that they might donate to or at least spread the word to others for awareness. For June we were curious of what the oldest zoo in the United States would happen to be, and we discovered that it’s The Philadelphia Zoo.
Since 1859, The Philadelphia Zoo has been open to the public, serving as not only a place of entertainment, but more importantly a chance for children and adults to both learn about the characteristics, history and well being of all sorts of animals. For instance, if you visit the page of a Golden Lion Tamarin, you can learn everything from their history, to their diet, to gaining info on how to adopt one!
Children especially always have a love for animals, but it really takes the help of adults to keep a tradition like this zoo running for not only well over 100 years, but just on a day to day basis. Visit their support page to learn how to get involved in many ways even if you can’t make it out to Philly to visit the zoo.
Look, we do things randomly around here, so this charity feature will run with us until mid/late July. That’s how we roll.
If you have an idea for a charity that you would like to have profiled on Randomville, then please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
