Help Us Build Rochan’s New Home!

With his bear-cub face, brilliant red fur, and shaggy long tail, Rochan, our Red Panda, captured the hearts of Zoo visitors when he joined us one year ago.  Though his visit was meant to be temporary, thanks to the outpouring of love and support for him, he has become part of the Zoo family.

And this means… he needs us to build a new home designed just for him, featuring:

  • Plenty of tree-top spots for sunbathing – his favorite activity!
  • A yard landscaped with bamboo for snacking – he eats approximately 20,000 bamboo leaves daily!
  • And with all that fur, a cool place to enjoy in the summer and great outdoor space to explore in the winter.

The Werth Family Foundation has graciously given us a $75,000 Challenge Grant to help build a new home for Rochan. Thanks to your support, we have met our challenge and raised a total of $150,000 towards Rochan’s exhibit.

Thanks to our generous donors, we have raised 100% of our $75,000 match goal!  We still need funds to meet our project goal.  Donate today to help us get there.
