“We are excited to welcome a new member to the zoo and to the San Antonio community,” said Tim Morrow, President & CEO, San Antonio Zoo. “San Antonio Zoo’s logo features two iconic animals, the giraffe and the rhino, which are both on the brink of extinction and both of which are species that we are working to save. It’s fitting to unveil the rhino as our first-ever mascot who will educate and spread awareness not only here at the zoo, but around San Antonio.”
