“Imtra was thrilled with the opportunity to donate towards the Rainforests, Rivers & Reefs project. We viewed it as a chance to show our support for an organization that has brought so much to this community. They’ve made such an effort to provide educational resources to local students and have transformed the zoo into a destination that draws visitors to New Bedford. We are proud of our affiliation and look forward to seeing their continued growth and success.” Derek Stern, Imtra

“​I purchased my plaque on the Rainforests, Rivers & Reefs donor wall to be “a part” of the Buttonwood Park Zoo. The Zoo is a place of great joy, entertainment, and education – and it has been for me for many decades​.​ The cost to support the Zoo was relatively inexpensive but the knowledge and the feeling of being a part of the Buttonwood Park Zoo was worth far, far more to me. Furthermore, to be able to do so in a way that supported the Zoo while giving me that emotional sense of belonging, and being able to do it in a way that privately was in honor and memory of my late father, well that made it all the more meaningful.” ​ Brock Cordeiro, Zoo Member
