Welcome to SHAPE—Africa

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!
