Back to Save ZBGA

We need your help: Governor proposes devastating cuts

Last year you joined with more than 3700 other Facebook members to send a powerful message to Governor Paterson that eliminating funding to the Zoos, Botanical Gardens and Aquariums Program (ZBGA) made no sense. Thanks to your advocacy we successfully saved ZBGA.

Well the Governor is at it again! This year he proposes cutting ZBGA by nearly 50%! These devastating cuts will cripple the 80 organizations around New York State. As you know we don't have the option of firiing our animals or furloughing our plants.

We wish we did not have to do this again but could you take a few moments and:

1. Ask your friends to join the SAve ZBGA cause

2. Send a message to our elected official by going to

We showed Albany last year that New Yorkers love their Zoos, Botanical Gardens and Aquariums. Please help us send that message again this year. Thanks!
