Parker's Baby Shower

White-cheeked gibbon Parker

Help us celebrate the soon-to-be arrival of our baby white-cheeked gibbon by showering Parker and Milo! Our gibbon pair are expecting their first baby this holiday season, with Parker due Dec. 15-27.

Your donation helps us give care above and beyond standard dietary and wellness requirements. As we approach the holidays, let’s join together to celebrate Parker and Milo and give them the support they need to welcome their new baby! 

From now until Tuesday, Dec. 7, your donation is matched $1 for $1 up to $25,000 thanks to a generous donor. Your gift could help our new family. 

For Example:

$5 buys a bale of straw 

$27 purchases smaller rope for young gibbon

$49 buys a bottle warmer

$96 feeds Parker and Milo for one week

$194 buys a Holey Moley wildlife toy box

Because of you, your Akron Zoo continues to connect your life to wildlife while inspiring lifelong learning and conservation action. We are grateful you’ve joined us on this journey and are excited to welcome a new white-cheeked gibbon to our growing family!

Thank you for your support!
