ZOO WARS ~ Flood Emergency ~ Dig Deep My Friends, “We Need Your Help”
The flooding in Oklahoma, Texas and now begun in Arkansas has been horrifying!!! Water spilling over the edge of dams, cars being flipped by the fast moving water, the rescues from flooded homes, road closures, people being caught in flash floods has ALL already occurred in Texas and Oklahoma.
GW Zoo needs your help to help the animals. This is not to be taken lightly and I ask my friends to dig deep. Business was way off before the flooding began and now facing a financial strain.
from GW Zoo:

Worst Flood In 16 Years
No one can ever predict the weather. Nice weather is where the zoo and the animals count on making money from visitors to the zoo in order to make it through the winter time. The spring storms has hit worse this year than anytime in the last 16 years. Still we have one more week of the continued rain which will set us back even more. Right now all the animals are safe however we need to purchase sand and gravel to raise many of the low spots we have in the zoo which is causing flooding.
Please help us at www.gwzoo.org
