ZooWorld Zoological Restoration

$11,373 of $300,000 goal

Raised by 62 people in 8 months
ZooWorld Zoological Park, located in Panama City Beach, Florida was recently hit by hurricane Michael and sustained major damage throughout the park.
The zoo lost the majority of its perimeter fences and sustained damage to several of its exhibits.  The majority of the  downed trees will require professional removal.

Zoo staff are all fine and have been accounted for, with only 3 having suffered damages to their homes.
 
We will be using all funds raised to remove trees, repair damages, improve emergency facilities and provide support for our staff.

I apologize for the quality of writing in this campaign. As I am unable to get to cell service until much later at night thoughts are always jumbled.

A few things I'm sure you'd like to know:
My name is Kayte Hogan, I have been the director of ZooWorld for 4 years. Since my first day, we have been on an aggressive mission to improve the zoo, which has been a Panama City Beach icon since 1947. Our little zoo is special and we are determined to make its appearance match its heart.

Quotes on tree removal range from high $100,000's to over $200,000. We lost our entire perimeter fenceline and have animals yards that are no longer usable and need to be rebuilt. We would also like to be able to continue our efforts in rebuilding the older facilities to make them safe for future emergency situations.

We have thanked God every day since the hurricane for our safety and the safety of our animals during the storm. We recognize that so many have lost so much and our hearts go out to them.
