  Check out 2011's Zoo Brew:

The Santa Barbara Zoo was founded in 1963, by a dedicated group of community volunteers. Today, the staff of 80-200 employees (depending on the season) and more than 500 volunteers keep the Zoo running and working toward its mission: to preserve, conserve, and enhance the natural world and all of its living treasures through education, research, and recreation.

Known as one of the world's most beautiful zoos, the Santa Barbara Zoo is located on 30 acres of lush botanic gardens overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Andree Clark Bird Refuge and Santa Ynez Mountains.

A private 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, the Santa Barbara Zoo depends on the support of the community, not tax dollars, for operations and improvements. By supporting Zoo Brew, you are also supporting the conservation efforts of the Zoo. Thank you on behalf of all of our animals!
