Support the Zoo

Sloth ornamentHang something really wild on your tree.

To celebrate the Zoological Society’s 30th animal ornament, local artist Andy Schumann has captured the beauty of the sloth. The handcrafted ornament is made of pewter and commemorates the exciting addition of female sloth Nentas. She came from a zoo in Seattle and shares a habitat with male Fezzik.

You can order this year’s ornament or any of the previous 29. The cost of each ornament is $16, which includes postage, mailing materials and WI sales tax. Proceeds assist the Zoological Society in providing support to the Milwaukee County Zoo. This purchase is not tax-deductible.
