Lee Houts Memorial Fund
Lee Houts inspired so many animal
caretakers with her dedication to providing an excellent quality of life for
captive animals everywhere. Lee was famous for her unrelenting support of
enrichment efforts, from encouraging the staff of a small zoo to participating
in intensive working groups tasked with determining enrichment standards for
national zoo organizations.
In keeping with Lee Houts’
devotion to spreading enrichment knowledge and enthusiasm around the world, The
Shape of Enrichment, Inc. began accepting donations in her memory.
Monies donated to the Lee Houts
Memorial Fund are dedicated towards furthering enrichment efforts in developing
countries, by providing educational opportunities to those in financial need.
For example, a keeper from a developing country might be funded to attend an
enrichment workshop or conference. Board approval is required for these funds
to be used.
Even small donations can go a long, long way in many of
these countries. Anything will help!
