Listed as Endangered by the IUCN, there are as few as 4,000 snow leopards remaining in the wild with a declining population due to habitat loss, human encroachment and climate change. Snow leopards expertly navigate high mountain ranges in Central Asia and their populations positively affect other species as well as the local people in their areas. Our commitment to snow leopards and conservation starts here, with Coconut, the young cat who was born with various congenital disabilities in 2018. Because of the exceptional care he received at the zoo along with @ucdavisvetmed , Coconut is the thriving and lively snow leopard he was meant to be. Your visit to the Sac Zoo allows us to support @snowleopardtrust, which aims to protect wild snow leopard populations and directly works with local communities in Central Asia to coexist with these endangered cats. Help us to save this beautiful and elusive species from extinction by visiting the Sac Zoo today! 💙❄️ #InternationalSnowLeopardDay #CoconutTheSnowLeopard #SacramentoZoo ...

Hey, hey, it's #WorldOkapiDay! Deep in the heart of Africa, in the dense jungles of the Democratic Republic of Congo, lives the magical okapi. ✨ Unfortunately, there are less than 25,000 of these incredible animals left in the wild and their population is steadily declining due to human encroachment and deforestation. . Here at the Sac Zoo, we aid in #okapi conservation by inspiring our guests to learn about these magical creatures, and by supporting the @OkapiConservation Project which works to employ and empower native people to coexist with this amazing species. . We are so excited to team up with @BikeDogBrewing for #AnimalsOnTap to celebrate and support okapi conservation. Make sure to come out tomorrow to try "Zebra Pants," a West Coast IPA. 🍻 . #ZebraPants #BikeDogBrewing #SacramentoZoo ...
