Zoo rendezvous gets a little wild


The San Diego Zoo treated hundred of supporters to an Australian Outback experience June 16 during the 29th annual black-tie, fund-raiser, Rendezvous in the Zoo (R-I-T-Z ).

Themed Zoomerang, this year’s party benefits the Conrad Prebys Australian Outback and the zoo’s koala conservation efforts.

This year’s event included food and drinks; silent and live auctions; an opportunity drawing; up-close encounters with animal ambassadors, including birds and reptiles, a cheetah, a porcupine, a wolf, and a koala.
