Just Zoo It Winners Name Wallaby at Salisbury Zoo

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - Students from Vienna Elementary got the chance to name one of the wallabies at the Salisbury Zoo Thursday, as a part of their VIP experience for winning the Just Zoo It campaign.

Students were asked to collect money to donate to the Zoo , and the class that raised the most got a VIP tour.

Ms. Haugh's 5th grade class was the overall winner, collecting more than $600 in nickels, dimes and quarters.

"I think it's really awesome because we're just like a small little community, and when you think about it, a little elementary school got to have a chance to name an actual animal that's going to be in public. I think it's very cool," said 5th grader Rebecca Bradley.

Classmate Travis McFarland added, "I feel pretty good about myself, about helping all these animals."

All participating schools helped raise more than $35,000 total.
