[ARCHIVED] Help Sid and the Idaho Falls Zoo during Idaho Gives

Best of Sid MD

Idaho Gives is an online fundraising fair that invites the public to support one day (24 hours) of online giving to non-profits throughout Idaho.

This year, Idaho Gives is on May 2 and the Tautphaus Park Zoological Society (TPZS) is asking you to help build new playgrounds for our adorable grey gibbon, Sid, his family, and the other primates at the Idaho Falls Zoo.

All money raised will go to purchase supplies to rebuild the climbing structures in the Primate Discovery Center. These are the log structures inside the primates’ exhibits. Climbing is extremely important to the health and welfare of many species of primates, particularly gibbons like Sid, as they are adapted to spend the majority of their time swinging from trees high above the air.

You can help us reach our $4,000 goal by donating at:

Sid says thanks!
