Target: Brian Aucone, Denver Zoo Vice President for Animal Care
Goal: Thank the Denver Zoo for supporting a new wild animal hospital in Nepal
A new wild animal hospital will provide care for endangered wild animals, like the Bengal tiger, at the Chitwan National Park in Nepal. This hospital has only been made possible because of a generous donation from the Denver Zoo. Thank the zoo for their support of these amazing animals.
Chitwan National Park is a World Heritage reserve that protects over 579 square miles (932 square kilometers) of forests, marshlands, grasslands, and wildlife. The reserve supports such endangered animals as the one-horned rhinoceros and the Bengal tiger. There are fewer than 2,500 Bengal tigers and about 3,000 one-horned rhinoceroses alive today, and many of them live in the Chitwan National Park in Nepal. Both of these beautiful creatures are in danger from poachers and human encroachment into their native habitat.
The creation of the new hospital to care for these endangered animals would not have been possible without a donation of $150,000 (10.5 million rupees) from the Denver Zoo. Thank Brian Aucone, Vice President for Animal Care, for the zoo’s support of endangered animals in Nepal.
Dear Mr. Aucone,
The Chitwan National Park in Nepal is a sanctuary for many endangered species in Nepal, like the one-horned rhinoceros and the Bengal tiger. Now, thanks to the generous donation from the Denver Zoo, they will have a first rate wild animal hospital to provide care for these amazing animals.
Mr. Aucone, thank you and the Denver Zoo for your support of these animals. The new hospital would not have been possible without it.
