About this Event

ART for the AMAZON

Come out and enjoy a night in our Bear Hammock hideaway at the zoo. There will be music, food, drinks, and many works of art painted by our very own animal artists. Most masterpieces, from our aesthetic armadillos to our zealous zebras, will be available in our silent auction section. Space is limited so buy your ticket today!

All proceeds from the event will be donated to Panthera, a large and small cat conservation organization that is raising money to stop the spread of fires in the Amazon. "Right now, fires are burning dangerously close to critical wild cat habitats in South America such as Noel Kempff National Park in Bolivia. Already, we estimate that these fires have killed 500 jaguars in Brazil and Bolivia alone, and likely twice as many pumas and small cats." - Panthera (check it out: https://www.panthera.org/amazon-fire)

The Naples Chapter of the American Association of Zoo Keepers welcomes you to our event. Let's help raise money to prevent further community and habitat destruction and save lives through art! Check out our Facebook page for further updates and information about the Art for the Amazon. (Naples AAZK Chapter)

UPDATE 11/14: We will do our best to inform our guests if the weather will prevent our event. Look for an update here around 4pm 11/15. It's going to be a fun night y'all! So glad you can join us in helping raise money to stop the fires. Come hungry, Pollo Tropical is catering our South American fundraising event. It may be a little on the chilly side for us Floridians so dress appropriately - casual - jungle party clothes. Side note, we will have hedgehog bookmarks for sale $5, first comers can get a jump on those. We will be accepting checks, cards, and cash. Our striped hyena just added a nice addition to the art collection today - she is quite the artist. We only have a few ticket spots left before the event is closed so hurry and get your ticket!
