Did you know that the lightest animal at the Detroit Zoo is the butterfly and the heaviest is the white rhinoceros? Butterflies can be as light as .0004 gram while the white rhino can weigh in at 6,000 pounds or more.
As a nonprofit responsible for the care and welfare of more than 2,600 animals, we rely on charitable gifts to support our mission of Celebrating and Saving Wildlife. Donations of any amount to the Detroit Zoo Fund help with this effort.
