Event Category: Out on the Town
Please join the Detroit Zoological Society (DZS) for an extraordinary evening as we celebrate our third annual “Wildlife Conservation Gala,” presented by Ford Motor Company, from 6-9:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 16. Themed “Saving Birds Around the World,” the event will celebrate the DZS’s global wildlife conservation efforts. Enjoy hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, and a sit-down dinner in the iconic Wildlife Interpretive Gallery; a brief presentation on the DZS’s expansive work in bird conservation; and the presentation of the 2019 Nautilus Award. This award is given to an individual whose efforts have made a profound impact on the future of wildlife and embodies the DZS’s mission of “Celebrating and Saving Wildlife.” The evening will also feature a raffle with the chance to win “zoonique” prizes. During this year’s Wildlife Conservation Gala, we will share fascinating stories about current fieldwork with penguins in the Falkland Islands and Antarctica, as well as long-term preservation efforts in the Great Lakes region with piping plovers and other species. This is a 21-and-older event. Cocktail attire. All proceeds benefit the Detroit Zoological Society’s wildlife conservation programs.
