This past Summer Facebook fans helped the zoo win a Toyota Hybrid Highlander in Toyota’s 100 Cars for Good program.  The Highlander now has its arctic-wrap and is ready to be unveiled by Zoo director John Walczak with the help of Zoo mascot Tundra.

The Highlander will be used for the Zoo to You program which brings Zoo educators and animals into the classrooms of elementary schools across the Commonwealth.   

The graphics on the Highlander are impactful and will likely create some conversation as it motors down the road to schools in the state.
