Lynn Cobb, dedicated Virginia Zoological Society Board Member, shares why she has chosen to leave her legacy with the Virginia Zoo:

“As a native of Norfolk, I truly feel that the Zoo is one of our best resources. Where else can you take your entire family to experience something as unique and exciting as a new baby lion, a rhinoceros rolling in the mud, or a gargantuan python. The Virginia Zoo has been a destination for my family for many years and I want to ensure that it is here years to come.”
