Annually, more than 2.46 million guests visit the Zoo to come face-to-face with over 6,000 animals representing 800 species. The Zoo’s mission is to provide a fun, unique, and inspirational experience that fosters appreciation, knowledge, and care for the natural world.

Going wild for a cause

Patterson + Sheridan is proud to have been a long time supporter of fundraising efforts for the Houston Zoo and Wildlife Conservation through annual events. Since 2000, our firm has supported the Family Party, Zoo Ball, and the Conservation Gala. In addition to events, our attorneys Nan Carr and Puja Detjen are members of the Flock Patron program for Young Professionals, which allows them to enjoy events with other young professionals in Houston while learning more about the zoo's conservation efforts.
