Just Zoo It Cans Collected, Fundraiser Count Begins

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - The race to name a Salisbury Zoo Wallaby has ended, now students must wait for their change to be added up. Students in 33 schools across Delmarva raised money this Halloween for the Just Zoo It contest.

The class that collects the most money in the four participating counties gets a special trip to the zoo and pizza party. But it doesn't end there, the top earning class overall will also get to name one of the wallabies at the zoo.

Officials tell WMDT that so far, the turnout has been great. "When you look at the number of kids participating across the Delmarva peninsula, not just Salisbury, it's really breathtaking that many people care about the zoo," says zoo director Ralph Piland.

Now in its third year, Just Zoo It has helped raise more than $52,000 for the Delmarva Zoological Society.
