Chattanooga Zoo’s Wild About Zoo Online Auction Is Live

  • Monday, November 9, 2020

The Chattanooga Zoo's Wild About Zoo online auction is now live. In these extraordinary times, the Chattanooga Zoo is counting on the community to sustain its mission.

The goal of Wild About Zoo is to raise $20,000 through charitable giving and an online auction.

More than 60 auction items are up for bid, including “zoonique” experiences such as a family photography session at the Zoo, private class of fennec fox flow yoga, naming opportunities for the Superb starlings and baby Rock hyraxes, and a chance to be a zoo trainer for a day. Even the animals joined in on creating auction items, including a set of wine glasses painted by the chimpanzee troop, a growth ruler painted by the komodo dragons, and a handheld mirror painted by the hedgehogs.

“We’re thrilled to be able to offer these fun and unique experiences - and just in time for the holidays,” said Dardenelle Long, Zoo president and CEO.

Bidding will close at 7 p.m. on Nov 20 during the Zoo’s Beastly Feast event; winners will be announced shortly thereafter.
