Learn About the Greater One-Horned Rhino – Besides obvious differences — population range and appearance — the greater one-horned rhino differs in other ways to our black rhino. A new species to Denver Zoo when Asian Tropics opens next spring, one-horned rhinos are aquatic animals and excellent swimmers. They also need moisture to keep their feet and skin healthy. Unlike the black rhino, which uses its horn to defend itself, the one-horned rhino uses its dagger-like teeth. Both species are of concern in the wild: Black rhinos are critically endangered and only 2,500 greater one-horned rhinos remain in the wild today. Learn more.
Gift Annuity Great Way to Give, Earn – A charitable gift annuity is a nice way to give to Denver Zoo, while receiving a fixed-dollar amount each year for life (gift of $5,000 or more). Denver Zoo annuities offer tremendous benefits, including higher returns than most certificates of deposit and an up-front charitable deduction for a portion of your gift, if you itemize. Zoo annuities also offer partially tax-free payments. Perhaps the best benefit is supporting the zoo's mission to "Secure a better world for animals through human understanding." For more information, call 303-376-4863 or email email@example.com.
Two More Free Days Left in 2011 – Only two free days remain in 2011: Sunday, November 6 and Saturday, November 12. Those who attend free days are advised to take public transportation, walk or bike to Denver Zoo. Parking is limited, so take advantage of mass transit. Visit RTD's website for more information.
