CEF Silent Auction

Send in your donations today!

The Kansas City Zoo is thrilled to be hosting the 2013 Association of Zoos & Aquariums (AZA) Annual Conference and supporting the AZA Conservation Endowment Fund (CEF) Silent Auction.

The Conservation Endowment Fund, established in 1984, supports the cooperative conservation-related scientific and educational initiatives of AZA and AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums and their collaborators.  Since 1991, CEF has provided $5.7 million to over 320 projects worldwide since, including the reintroduction and monitoring of the Mountain Yellow-Legged Frog (Rana muscosa) in southern California and resolving conflict between humans and threatened Large carnivores in Tanzania's Ruaha Landscape.   

Because of the generous donations of items and services from the AZA membership, we were able to raise more than $35,000 for the CEF at last two Annual Conferences in Atlanta and Phoenix.  Please help us to continue to support the Conservation Endowment Fund by donating a unique or specialty auction item highlighting your institution, programs, or partners you support for the 2013 AZA Annual Conference in Kansas City.  Your donation will have a direct impact on the important work done by our colleagues. 

Complete the auction donation form and send back with your item.  Please send your donation early!

Should you have any questions about the auction, please contact Melinda Greene at or (816) 513-5806.
