Zoo Boise is giving a quarter of a million dollars to the city to help protect the foothills. It's all part of the zoo’s conservation mission.
Zoo Boise raises conservation funds to help wildlife in need all around the world. So Director Steve Burns says giving some of that money to preserve the Boise Foothills makes perfect sense.
“This is our backyard,” says Burns.
Burns says people love the foothills, but it’s also a home for a wide variety of wildlife.
