In Memory of Judith Heumann
Independent living is not doing things by yourself. It is being in control of how things are done."
Judith was a disability rights activist, known as the "Mother of the Disability Rights Movement." She passed away this past March. To learn more about Judy, her incredible life and impact, visit www.judithheumann.com.
Diversity is great. Inclusion is where we are. But where we really need to get to is BELONGING.

Founded in 1914, the Rosamond Gifford Zoo at Burnet Park is among the top 10 percent of zoos in North America awarded accreditation by the Association of Zoos & Aquariums. The zoo is dedicated to connecting people to the natural world by providing engaging guest experiences, exceptional animal care and unparalleled conservation education.
The zoo is home to more than 700 animals representing 216 different species — from tiny poison dart frogs to 8,000-pound Asian elephants — many of them threatened or endangered.
The Rosamond Gifford Zoo prides itself on our accreditation from the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), a distinction earned by only 240 institutions. AZA accreditation is your guarantee that the Rosamond Gifford Zoo meets the highest standards of animal care and welfare, wildlife conservation education and guest experience.
The Rosamond Gifford Zoo is also a breeding zoo, working closely with other AZA institutions to help ensure the survival of threatened and endangered species around the world.
Take your time, observe the animals, stroll the grounds, enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and help us make the world a better place for animals and people.
