A pancake breakfast at the Prospect Hill Fire Department on February 11th, 2017, raised $1800 for the Conservators Center. Fourteen-year-old Ethan Mitchell organized and promoted the pancake breakfast, charging $6 per plate. All proceeds went to the Center.
Fundraisers like these are critical to the Center, allowing us to provide quality care for our residents. Each species has special needs: The desert-dwelling fennec foxes, for example, require winter quarters in colder weather. Some individual animals, too, such as our geriatric lioness Daisy, require vitamins and medication to keep them safe, comfortable, and happy.
We’re also excited that a new generation feels as powerfully about conservation as we do. We are immensely proud of Ethan’s dedication and of the support of the community at large.
