Our vision is a future where wildlife thrives in Minnesota and beyond.
Thank you for joining us.

This past year, we spent considerable time thinking about how our changing world impacts the work of the Minnesota Zoo.  Thankfully, because of generous support from the State of Minnesota and our members and donors, we were able to focus on our vision and plans for taking the Zoo in new directions well into the future.  At the same time, we continued to deliver exceptional environmental education and wildlife conservation programs while providing our guests with an outstanding guest experience.

I am pleased to report the State continued its strong investment in the Zoo.  We completed the fiscal year with strong financial results, and we are well positioned for the next biennium for which we received a 10% increase in our general fund appropriation.  We also received Legacy Amendment Funds for special programs and lottery funds for the mussel conservation project – an exciting partnership with the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to restore native mussels to our rivers and streams to ensure a healthy ecosystem.

We want to acknowledge you and other Minnesotans who sent 85,800 emails to Governor Dayton and Minnesota Legislators, thanking them for their support this year.  Thank you!  It is that kind of positive action that makes a difference for our Zoo.

We also want to thank our generous donors.  We ended the year with the second largest annual fund in our history, raising $5,928,456.  The Minnesota Zoo Foundation also launched a $3.8 million Wells Fargo Family Farm Revitalization Campaign and received two lead gifts totaling $1 million.  And, we celebrated the most successful Beastly Ball in Zoo history.

Finally, our 2017 year-end results are strong because you visited our Zoo!  This past year we attracted more than 1.35 million visitors, and we now boast more than 43,452 member households.  While there are many reasons people visited our Zoo this past year, the seasonal exhibit Kangaroo Crossing was a blockbuster, and no wonder.  Guests were invited into the exhibit without barriers on an Australian walkabout with kangaroos, wallabies, and emus.

Many visitors also participated in the new Backstage with Kangaroos program where they came face-to-face with these bounding, long tailed animals and fed them breakfast, while others spent the night in tents overlooking the exhibit on Family Overnights.   Immersive educational experiences like these inspire our guests to develop a lifelong commitment to nature and wild animals - something we want all Minnesotans to enjoy.

That is why we launched Free to Explore, an initiative designed to attract ALL Minnesotans to the Minnesota Zoo regardless of their financial circumstances.  Since the inception of Free to Explore, the Zoo realized a 29% increase in the numbers of guests who visited the Zoo free of charge simply by showing their public assistance cards – from about 57,000 people in 2016 to nearly 83,000 guests in 2017.

Clearly, our achievements this past year demonstrate Minnesotans interest in wild animals, which inspires us to do more, do better in response to our changing world.  To ensure our continued success, we approved a Revised Strategic Plan that specifically addresses a number of critical changes in our world – from the many hours children spend connected to technology to the changing views of zoos and aquariums.

We developed a multi-year plan through 2028 (the Zoo’s 50th anniversary) that will revitalize the Zoo’s assets and exhibits and provide new immersive experiences and exhibits like Kangaroo CrossingIn addition, we began work on a Nature Plan that will take advantage of our 485-acre site and create more opportunities for people to get out and explore nature.  We will ensure that the Minnesota Zoo is not only a place to see wild animals but also a Gateway to Nature.  Further, our Nature Plan will allow the Zoo to reach increased demographics, build new partnerships, and add many new additional products to the Zoo’s expansive campus, resulting in a more sustainable business model.

We are proud of our 2017 accomplishments, and we thank you for making them possible.  As we consider our future and how we continue to respond to our changing world, we are as committed as ever to bring more people to the Minnesota Zoo, and in partnership with them, fulfill our vision: A future where wildlife thrives in Minnesota and beyond.  Thank you for joining us!

Sincerely,

John Frawley

President, Minnesota Zoo Foundation

Perhaps, no other animal in the world boasts as many names as the puma.  Also called a mountain lion, cougar, catamount, Florida panther, the puma has more than 80 names.  But, at the Minnesota Zoo we like to call our newest puma just one name: “Landslide.”  Orphaned and rescued from a landslide in the state of Washington, this adorable puma made his public debut at the Minnesota Zoo in 2017.  Our friends at the Oregon Zoo cared for him until he was ready to travel to Minnesota. 

Similar to our other rescued animals, including our brown and black bears, gray wolves, sea turtle, eagle, and more, Landslide is not only thriving but also serving as an ambassador for his species.  Remarkably, pumas have been in the Americas for hundreds of thousands of years.  While this animal is resilient, adaptable, fast, and strong, it sadly has not been able to survive human encroachment on its habitat.  Today, pumas in North America survive only in the western United States, Canada, and Mexico, with a small population in southern Florida and an occasional sighting in Minnesota.  Despite being pushed into smaller and smaller regions, the puma is listed as an animal of “least concern” of becoming extinct in the wild in the near future. 

Why? Because pumas adapt to live in many different ecosystems!  And, that is why Landslide has such a critical role to play.

Living today on the Medtronic Minnesota Trail, following months of veterinary care by Zoo staff, Landslide enchants guests with his playful behaviors and curiosity while he also helps tell the story of this vanishing “America’s lion.”

There are those who believe that the puma’s adaptability will ensure it does not disappear from the wild forever.  While pumas are not listed as endangered, this does not mean they are not in trouble; their populations are declining as habitats are destroyed or they are hunted or killed by motorists.  Landslide reminds us why no one can become complacent about protecting wild animals. 

We thank you for your generous gifts this past year to ensure that we are doing all we can to ensure pumas and animals survive in the wild forever.

Before they became sponsors of Seqium and Landslide, the Minnesota Zoo’s two rescued puma kittens, Becki Sanford and Joyce Huff bumped into each other often at Zoo events. In time, they became friends who share a passion for the Zoo and our world’s wildlife. And, each also sponsored elements on the Zoo’s Conservation Carousel.

Becki attended the Carousel ground breaking in 2013 and decided to sponsor the baby hippo and the Rocky Mountain panel, with a special dedication: “For the inner child in all of us.”

Joyce, who loves travel and will have visited 97 countries by the time she turns 70 next year, has a very special connection with one of her sponsored Carousel animals. “I visited Rwanda and Uganda,” she recalls, “and we hiked into an area where we could view a gorilla troop in the wild. A little gorilla ran up to me and put his arm around my leg. He was just like the baby gorilla on the Carousel,” she says. “It’s like it was meant to be.”

It is not surprising given their love for the Zoo’s animals, that Joyce and Becki would want to help support the arrival of Sequim and Landslide. As a photographer, Becki counts one of her best photos to be a close-up of one of the Zoo’s pumas. And, Joyce confesses, “I’ve had cats for years, and now Sequim and Landslide are my big cats at the Zoo.” It is this deep shared connection with animals and their generous gifts to the Minnesota Zoo Foundation that help our pumas receive the best possible care.

Joyce is a longtime south metro resident. A former teacher at an Apple Valley alternative high school, she relied on the Zoo’s trails as exercise grounds for her students when there was no gym on site. Even today, she says, “If I want to go walking, I go to the Zoo. When baby animals are born such as the tiger, I go every week and see how they grow and change. There’s always something to do at the Zoo, and it’s always fun,” she says.

Becki pursues her photography while she’s at the Zoo. She enjoys taking pictures of the prairie dogs because they remind her of the prairie dogs that first captivated her during a childhood vacation to the South Dakota Badlands. When she’s not visiting the Zoo, Becki volunteers at the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, rides her horses, and works as a software engineer in Bloomington. She is always quick to point out: “I like the Minnesota Zoo because it’s geared towards animals, not people.”

We are grateful for our Puma Pair Becki Sanford and Joyce Huff. They are making a difference for the Zoo and its animals in so many ways. Thank you!

 

When children and people of all ages visit the Minnesota Zoo, they often fall in love with a particular animal.  The five-year old boy squeals with delight when he touches a piglet.  The teenage girl is enchanted by the antics of the puma kittens and curious about the power of Amur tigers.  The young family spends hours watching the wolves and bison, reminding them of their trips to Yellowstone National Park.

For Zoo Director John Frawley, these kinds of experiences are critical to the work of the Minnesota Zoo.  However, he questioned whether it was enough.  “I grew up in Minnesota and was the kid who left at dawn and returned at dusk after a day exploring the rivers, lakes, and forests surrounding my home.  I know it was those experiences that motivated me to work in a profession that is helping inspire Minnesotans to protect and save our natural world.  But today, I also know we need to do more and reach more people.”

So we asked ourselves: Can we do better?  How do we deliver experiences that change our guests’ attitudes towards wildlife and nature, and how do we inspire them to change their behaviors and actively join us in efforts to save wildlife? Just as important: How do we reach and attract those who may not be visiting our Zoo or might not have the confidence to be out in nature?   How does the Minnesota Zoo become the gateway to nature?

In 2017, the Minnesota Zoo established the Nature Task Force to help answer these questions. The purpose of the Nature Task Force was to develop a three-to-five year program and business plan.  We recognized we could not do it alone, so we asked conservation, education and community leaders to join us on this task force. 

 The Nature Task Force began meeting in winter 2017, and dug deep into development of the new Nature Plan that will complement the Zoo’s revised Strategic Plan.  It also supports and builds upon collaborations with a myriad of other organizations such as:

• Children and Nature Network
• Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR)
• Minnesota Department of Education
• Dakota County Department of Parks and Recreation
• Conservation Minnesota
• Dodge Nature Center
• YMCA
• Girl Scouts of Minnesota and Wisconsin River Valleys
• Boys and Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities
• Northern Star Council of Boy Scouts of America
• Wilderness Inquiry
• Voyagers Outward Bound School

Each of which had a representative serving on the Task Force.

While there’s still work to be done on finalizing and gaining approval on the plan, here is a preview of the kinds of experiences the Zoo hopes will build its guests’ confidence in exploring nature and continue their lifelong engagement in with the natural world:

  • Every Minnesota Zoo guest will enjoy a bird’s eye view of the Zoo as they walk along the Zoo’s new Minnesota Treetop Trail on the re-purposed monorail track.  With access points throughout the Zoo, Minnesota Treetop Trail gives guests opportunities to see nature from a completely new perspective, while encountering Zoo volunteers and naturalists who share stories and information about the plants and animals around them.

    As part of their biology class, groups of junior high school students spend the night at the Zoo’s Tent Camp in the back woods where students explore ponds and forests and discover the extraordinary world of nature at night. They identify nocturnal insects, listen for owls, and watch for lightning bugs and bats.

    In the midst of winter, Zoo families are able to strap on snowshoes or cross-country skis and explore new trails located throughout the Zoo and connected to Lebanon Hills Regional Park.  A Zoo naturalist joins them and talks about what happens to our natural world and its wild animals as the seasons change.  Half-way through their experience, they find a cabin where they retreat for hot cocoa and snacks in front of the huge stone hearth.

    Kids of all ages discover the thrill on the aerial challenge track, an elevated adventure of zip lines, challenge courses, and rock climbing that not only helps attract and keep kids outside but also helps increase their physical activity, improve emotional well-being, and build their confidence.

That might just be the confidence they need to paddle the Boundary Waters, kayak the Mississippi, or travel to Namibia to help save the desert black rhino.

In many ways, the work of the Nature Task Force is not new.  Your Zoo has been encouraging children to be active, explore, and have fun in nature for many years – at places such as the Splash Pad, Woodland Adventure, and Hanifl Family Wild Woods.  We have always encouraged children to get outdoors, be active, and connect with the natural world.  However, our work is to expand upon this strong foundation, collaborate with our partners, and ultimately help Minnesota celebrate citizens who are committed to saving wildlife because we’ve better connected them to nature.

The Nature Task Force and Zoo staff hope to have the Plan finalized and approved by the Boards in February 2018.

For millennia, they darted through grasses and pollinated purple coneflowers. Dakota skipper butterflies were once common across Minnesota’s prairies, but after losing 99% of their habitat, they nearly disappeared from Minnesota. Luckily, this quick orange butterfly now has a chance at a comeback because the Minnesota Zoo began the first ever reintroduction of the Dakota skipper back to Minnesota’s prairies in 2017! Even better, those reintroduced butterflies were observed mating again in the wild!

In June and July 2017, Minnesota Zoo scientists released over 200 Zoo-reared Dakota skippers at the Hole-in-the-Mountain Prairie Preserve, a protected prairie managed by The Nature Conservancy near Lake Benton in southwest Minnesota. This landmark was achieved after four years of ground-breaking work by the Zoo’s Prairie Butterfly Conservation Program to establish the first and only conservation breeding program for Dakota skippers.

The story begins back in 2013 when the Zoo raised eggs from wild Dakota skippers that had been temporarily collected from and then released back into their relatively healthy populations in northeastern South Dakota. In 2014, the Zoo became the first institution to successfully rear and breed a complete generation of Dakota skippers entirely in human care.  This conservation breeding and insurance population has grown every year, and by 2017, hundreds were available for reintroduction.

Dakota skippers are listed as a Threatened species nationally and an Endangered species in Minnesota. The species had disappeared from southwest Minnesota in the late 2000s. Happily though, Minnesota Zoo scientists sighted dozens of reintroduced skippers at the Preserve through July 2017, and recorded at least three matings! We assume that even more breeding occurred than we saw – the Preserve is a big place and usually only one Zoo staff member could be there every day for the month-long reintroduction and monitoring effort.

Today, this small fuzzy butterfly has the chance to survive again in Minnesota’s prairies thanks to the reintroduction efforts of the Zoo and its partners at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, and The Nature Conservancy.  The re-establishment of this lost butterfly to a large, healthy prairie it once called home is a first step to restoring this amazing landscape. The skippers depend on the deep rooted grasses that anchor fertile prairie soils, and the adults need native purple coneflowers for nectar and to find mates. Creating and maintaining high quality prairie habitat for Dakota skippers will also help other prairie wildlife like regal fritillaries, bobolinks, and prairie chickens.

 

Alan Krohnke believes that sometimes small steps can result in big changes for our world.  That is why his Minneapolis-based company Tiny Footprint Coffee is committed to reducing carbon in our atmosphere by helping plant native trees in the heavily-deforested Mindo Cloud Forest in Ecuador.

Over time, these newly planted trees will remove 54 pounds of carbon from the air every year! As important, this magical forest provides habitat for hundreds of bird species, reinforces soil conservation techniques, rebuilds water tables, and provides local jobs related to conservation and the protection of places like the cloud forest.

Tiny Footprint Coffee also supports the Minnesota Zoo’s Golden Lion Tamarin.  This beautiful golden hair primate is an endangered species living in Brazil’s Atlantic coastal rainforests that also are disappearing.  It’s the same story as the Mindo Cloud Forest where deforestation and the subsequent loss of critical animal habitat hinders natural processes, which help define where different animals and plants are able to thrive.

Alan and his team are committed to make a difference.  As the world’s first carbon negative coffee, Tiny Footprint Coffee sources only coffee beans that are sustainably-grown and organic certified.  The company is committed to making its entire roastery carbon negative.  Featuring high-efficiency lighting and fuel-efficient burners on the roaster, Tiny Footprint Coffee also composts all coffee grounds, reduces waste around the shop, and of course, uses only bio-degradable coffee bags.

The Minnesota Zoo is proud to partner with Tiny Footprint Coffee and bring greater awareness to the loss of critically-endangered natural habitat in South America. Alan and his team support reforestation and protection of the golden lion tamarin. Thank you Alan and Tiny Footprint Coffee!

It is a magical story that reminds us all of the interconnectedness of life and that when something dies, it gives new life to another.

This past year, the story was never more apparent than when the Minnesota Zoo said goodbye to its beloved 16-year old tiger Molniy and celebrated a new cub, Vera, born to Molniy’s daughter Sundari.  The circle of life continues, and while we mourn the passing of Molniy, the Zoo is thrilled to serve as home for Vera, an orange fur ball that has stolen the hearts of everyone who sees her.

“Vera is adorable, spunky, curious, playful, and inquisitive.  She is yet another tiger star at the Minnesota Zoo,” says Diana Weinhardt, Northern Trail curator.  “She has been a handful from day one.  Good thing she is so darn cute!”

Amur tigers like Vera are endangered in the wild, but are still considered a conservation success story.  By the 1930s, there were as few as 20-30 Amur tigers living in the Russian Far East, northern China, and the Korean peninsula.  But thankfully, Russia decided to do something about it – it granted the tiger full protection, and by the 1980s, there were approximately 500 tigers in the wild!  Since then, the population has remained stable in the wild, with  a similar number managed in zoo-based breeding programs.

“We still need to do more,” says Dr. Tara Harris, the Zoo’s vice president for conservation. “Poaching remains a major threat to wild Amur tigers. Zoos like ours have an incredible opportunity and responsibility to help, and I’m very proud that the Minnesota Zoo has been leading the charge to raise funds for on-the-ground efforts to secure a future for Amur tigers.

Will Vera ever get released into the wild?  Not likely, but she has no less of a critical role to play to ensure the survival of her species.  “Animals like Vera inspire our guests to help save wildlife.  She is endearing and charismatic, and even as she ages similar to Molniy, Vera will help tell the stories of animals at risk of extinction.  She will help fulfill our mission ‘to connect people, animals and the natural world to save wildlife,’” continues Dr. Harris.

In 2017, the Zoo continued to lead and raise funds for the Tiger Species Survival Plan’s (SSP) Tiger Conservation Campaign. Funds are earmarked for improving anti-poaching patrols in the Russian Far East and to close old logging roads in order to prevent poacher access.  Thank you Zoo donors for your gifts this past year!  Together with other zoos across the country, we have now raised more than $800,000 to help save wild tigers.

In the small farming community of Byron, Minnesota, the motto is “Where neighbors become family.”  It is here that Carmen and Jim Campbell grew up, attended school together, and married.  They then moved to the Twin Cities where Carmen taught kindergarten for 11 years, while Jim achieved a successful career in banking, eventually becoming the Chairman and CEO of Wells Fargo Bank Minnesota. 

Despite an extraordinarily full life with their family and careers, Carmen and Jim made it a priority to support their community with volunteer time and philanthropic support. The couple recently received the 2017 Outstanding Individual Philanthropist award, bestowed by the Association of Fundraising Professionals for, among other things, “… improving the lives of many people in many ways.” 

Although the Campbells count many education and child-related causes among their philanthropic priorities, they continue to embrace their rural roots. One of their signature achievements is the Minnesota Zoo’s Wells Fargo Family Farm. In partnership with Wells Fargo, Jim became a driving force behind the Farm’s opening in 2000. He noted prior to the merger of Norwest Bank with Wells Fargo that “agriculture was the bedrock of who we were as a bank.”

Carmen and Jim have remained strong Zoo supporters for over 30 years. Carmen currently serves as a member of the Zoo Board of Trustees and notes that “the exhibits are world-class, and they keep getting better and better.” But, their hearts still belong to the Farm and today, 18 years after helping to build it, these generous donors are leading the campaign to refresh and expand the Wells Fargo Family Farm. Plans include a new entrance and the construction of a bunkhouse for overnight stays so guests can “experience life on the farm.”

The Campbells also are looking forward to new projects that will encourage visitors to explore the Zoo’s forests and connect people of all ages with nature. The couple is especially intrigued about plans to convert the former monorail to an elevated walking trail and to build cabins for on-site overnights. “We are very excited about Zoo Director John Frawley’s vision. One of the great assets of the State of Minnesota is the land dedicated to the Zoo which has been an incredible steward of that state asset,” Jim says of the Zoo’s wooded 485 acres.

That being said, the Wells Fargo Family Farm will continue to be the Campbells’ favorite place to visit at the Zoo. Carmen has a special fondness for the Farm’s dairy barn and milking parlor, where a Jersey cow is named in her honor. “When we go there, it’s kind of like visiting family,” she jokes. Clearly, the influence of her rural upbringing in Byron remains with Carmen to this day.

We thank Carmen and Jim for their commitment to the Minnesota Zoo and for sharing Minnesota’s farming heritage with all of us at the Wells Fargo Family Farm.

As a lifelong nature enthusiast, Melissa Parker Lindsay joined the Minnesota Zoo Foundation in 2006 with a goal to help transform the Minnesota Zoo into a conservation-based organization.

In March 2017, when Melissa announced her retirement from the Minnesota Zoo Foundation, it gave us a moment to pause and celebrate so many accomplishments. Under Melissa’s direction and with the help of donors and members like you, the Foundation raised more than $50 million to support the Zoo and its conservation efforts between 2006 - 2017! Melissa was instrumental in raising funds for Russia’s Grizzly Coast, the Conservation Carousel, the Medtronic Minnesota Trail, Hanifl Family Wild Woods, and Heart of the Zoo. Thank you for your commitment to wildlife, Melissa.

Melissa’s impact will be felt at the Zoo forever, and we wish her the best her retirement.

By the way, if you are looking for Melissa during the winter months, you will likely find her in the far southwest corner of Texas in a huge national park called Big Bend. Big Bend National Park is home to 450 species of birds, 75 mammals, 56 reptiles, and 11 amphibians. It is no wonder she finds this place to be her paradise!
