Three cheers for Boo at the Zoo!!! (And a plug for our new podcast)

Cans collected at Boo at the Zoo
Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo students organize donated cans of food the day after Boo at the Zoo on Nov. 1, 2019 in Gainesville, Fla. (Matt Stamey/Santa Fe College )

We did good!! Big thanks to everyone who attended Boo at the Zoo this year. You helped donate a grand total of 5,330 cans of food! This food will be distributed by Catholic Charities Gainesville and by our own Gainesville Harvest @ SF food pantry. It will help feed our students who are food insecure, and other folks right here in our local community.

Wanna do more good, globally? Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo recently recorded a podcast episode (yes – we have a podcast!) about their role in global conservation efforts and how YOU can help animals around the world facing habitat loss and extinction. Check it out on
