Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock and Zoo President/CEO Craig Piper announced a multimillion dollar partnership between the zoo and regional Toyota dealers to sponsor the zoo's new 10-acre exhibit for Asian elephants, greater one-horned rhinos and Malayan Tapirs.
Toyota's commitment to protecting the environment through their own operations and innovative products makes them a great fit with Denver Zoo's cutting edge work in global conservation and sustainable business practices," noted Denver Zoo President/CEO Craig Piper.
There is still opportunity to support this tremendous project as we continue to raise funds for the innovative biomass gasification system that will power the exhibit and the education and conservation programs associated with Toyota Elephant Passage," says Piper.

Mayor John Hickenlooper, Denver Zoo President and CEO Craig Piper and a 250-pound sea lion named Gidget today announced a significant milestone in the city's sustainability efforts.
Zoo President Craig Piper, sea lion Gidget, Zookeeper Jessica Jenkins and Mayor Hickenlooper talk about the zoo's environmental performance.
In addition to the Denver Zoo, the City & County of Denver's departments of Environmental Health, Public Works, Mayor's Office (including Greenprint Denver), General Services, and Theatres & Arenas Division have certified their Environmental Management Systems through the comprehensive, internationally-recognized ISO-14001 independent accreditation process.
"We are so fortunate to live in a city where sustainable practices are valued so greatly," said Piper.
Whether it's supporting conservation, joining as a member or volunteer or participating in an educational program, it's the people who continue to support us year after year that must be thanked for making 2008 such a tremendous year," says Denver Zoo President/CEO Craig Piper.
"Every visit helps us provide the very best care for our animals and generates resources necessary to offer innovative education programs for students throughout Colorado and neighboring states and to conduct research and conservation programs in the Front Range and around the globe," noted Piper.
It's their dedication and passion for conservation that is helping us inspire and teach so many to appreciate animals and protect them for future generations," Piper says.
We want Denver Zoo to be a fabulous place for families to share in the wonders of wildlife," says Piper.

According to Craig Piper, the Zoo's Executive Director, "this technology will allow us to remove up to 90% of our waste from the waste stream. In addition, the Zoo is testing a new type of software that will evaluate a product's potential "fuel value" or how good a fuel source for gasification it will be at the end of its life. According to Mr. Piper, "being able to decide which products to purchase based on its fuel value, right down to the pens we buy, will further reduce our waste stream and yield significant cost savings."
This system replaced 70-80% of their potable water use, according to Mr. Piper, which also led to significant financial savings.
