How Two Young Artists Got Creative to Support Denver Zoo

This past winter, Denver Zoo was overcome with gratitude when our community made donations to support the health and wellness of our 3,000+ animals. Gifts of all sizes were made online, through the mail and in the form of tiny clay sculptures!

Audrey and Henry Roth used their creativity and set out to raise funds to feed our furry, scaled and feathered friends. Taking requests from all their customers, Audrey (10) and Henry (8) made a wide array of animal sculptures out of polymer clay. This included tigers and turtles, parrots and penguins, bears, flamingos…. nearly an entire zoo worth of sculptures! They sold over 100 of their pieces resulting in an astounding $1,300 for the animals who call Denver Zoo home!

Their contribution was so heart-warming, 9News even did a feature on our newest young philanthropists.

Henry and Audrey did more than just donate to Denver Zoo. We believe their miniature sculptures help forward our mission – Inspiring communities to save wildlife for future generations.

Be like Audrey and Henry and allow your creativity to sculpt a world where wildlife thrives.
