This year marked the 35th annual Zoofari. This year’s theme was “Color in the Wild, an Evening in White.” The theme was in honor of the colorful animals in one of the newest exhibits to Zoo Knoxville, the Clayton Family Amphibian and Reptile Conservation Campus. By dressing in white, attendees allowed the animals to be the most colorful part of the evening. Proceeds from the evening benefit Zoo Knoxville. These funds directly contribute to the day-to-day care of the more than 750 animals that call the zoo home and make a difference for the future of more than 70 endangered species through a national network.
