Taste of the Wild is an annual event held at Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary that raises much
needed funds for our animals and programs. We are a non-profit organization that’s home to more
than 200 animals that have either been displaced or can no longer survive in their natural habitats –
and we can’t do it without you! We boast programs that include more than 250 animal rescues every
year, covering everything from triage, relocation, release, and eventual permanent housing; we also
provide many interactive educational outreach programs for schools, groups and organizations.

Our annual Taste of the Wild event features a variety of restaurants, wineries and
breweries from all over Arizona that offer tastings from their menus. There is entertainment (all things
from musical performances and artists to novelty acts and games), a silent
auction (with items such as travel and resort packages, artwork, golf
packages, and jewelry), and behind-the-scenes visits with our
animals. Not only is the event a great time, but for a great cause.

This year’s Taste of the Wild event will be held on Sunday,
October 4 from 3 pm – 7 pm. Tickets are $75 per person and
include admission to the event, participation in all event activities
and a souvenir wine glass.

You can purchase tickets in person at our Gift Shop, by
calling us at 928.778.4242, online at www.HeritageParkZoo.org, or
by email: aschopp@HeritageParkZoo.org.
All proceeds for the event support the animals and programs at Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary.

Hold Your Next Event
at the Zoo!

If ever there was an animal of ours that loved getting attention
from the public, it’s Loki. So full of energy and enthusiasm,
he enjoys nothing more than showing off for our guests. He’s
currently up near the Mountain Lion enclosure – if you’re in
the area, I doubt you’ll be able to miss him; he’ll make sure
you notice!

Loki came to us about three months ago, and was
only a few days old when we first found him. He had been
abandoned on a trail in the area, and was not yet mature enough
to survive on his own. We gladly took him in and our Animal Care
Staff bottle fed him and nurtured him until he was big enough to
start taking care of himself.

Always a character, the photo above features
Loki picking up trash off the grounds. We pride ourselves on
conservation here at Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary – clearly
those sentiments are rubbing off on our animals, as well!

Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary is the perfect place to hold your next
event. From children’s birthday parties to weddings and receptions, HPZS
has a venue to suit your needs!

Our Event Center Lawn is our largest rental, and can accommodate groups of up to 250 people! It’s perfect for weddings and company
gatherings. Pence Pavilion (located near the playground) can be rented in
sections, and is ideal for smaller groups or large birthday parties. Other
rental spaces available include Kiwanis Ramada, Pronghorn Deck, and our
Gazebo. Add some excitement to your next event and join us at the zoo!

You might have seen or heard him briefly over the past few months, but Ricky, our Capuchin Monkey, has technically been off exhibit since his arrival
here last October. That will be changing now that he’s finally able to join the other primates on the grounds!

National zoological regulations require that when we receive a new animal, it must first go through a “quarantine period”. This is simply a
health and safety regulation for the new animal, the other animals on ground, and of course, guests. But don’t worry; he still received plenty of attention from everyone here.

His quarantine phase is now officially complete, but there wasn’t an enclosure suitable for him on grounds. The Animal Welfare Institute
has strict regulations on the housing and husbandry of primates. First, all primates must have contact with other primates. Just like us, non-human
primates are social beings. You cannot have a solitary primate in an isolated enclosure. However, we don’t currently have any other Capuchins in our
stay, so we had to build a structure that neighbors the Lemur enclosure. What we did was split the Lemur house (put a barrier between them, but they
can still talk and interact), and built a night house on the back end. New friends AND a new climate-controlled night enclosure for both species!

The enclosure came together with the help of many hands, and turned out great. As you’re reading this, Ricky has probably already been
introduced to the new space and his new friends. Next time you’re out, come visit the Lemur enclosure and see if Ricky is out and about!

New Animals at HPZS!
Cara, our American Alligator (Alligator mississippiensis), came to
us via a confiscation from a private individual after being cared for
improperly. Little Cara is currently residing in our Reptile House.
A Marmoset (Callithrix jacchus), Lilly, came in just a few weeks ago
after having been privately owned by a family in the Phoenix area.
She is currently going though her mandated quarantine phase.

Cara, American Alligator

Donald & Haley, Tegus

Two Tegus (Tupinambis merianae), Donald & Haley, came to us
from a private donor. They’re a great addition to our Sanctuary,
and are housed in our Educational Animal Building.
Our Asian Water Monitor (Varanus salvator), Snapple, came to us
very recently from a private individual. She’s still currently going
through her quarantine period and is off-display.

Snapple, Asian Water Monitor

Loki, our baby Coyote (Canis latrans), came to us back in April
after being found abandoned on a trail near Lake Pleasant. He
was only a day or two old at the time and was unable to survive
in the wild by himself. He’s currently in an enclosure by Jade, our
Mountain Lion.
Lilly, Marmoset

In Memoriam

Darlin, Red-Tailed Boa

Loki, Coyote

Mr. Billsworth, Jeweled Lizard

Darlin, our Red-Tailed Boa, passed away in March. She came to us in 2003,
though beyond that her age is unknown. Darlin was humanely euthanized
after suffering from an in-operable spinal disease.
Chloe, our Coati, was 14 years old and came to us in 2013. She passed due
to in-operable cancer of the throat.
Mr. Billsworth, our Jeweled Lizard, came to us in February of last year, and
passed due to unknown causes. He was more than 10 years old at time of
death, an average lifespan for this species.
Chloe, Coati

Natasha, Serval

Natasha, our Serval, came to our Sanctuary in December of 2013. She was
10 years old and passed due to uterine cancer.
