San Diego Zoo received this coin from the Turtle Back Zoo in West Orange, New Jersey on May 17, 2019 during the launch of San Diego Zoo Kids channel at the Goryeb Children's Hospital. By bringing a sloth, penguin, and other amazing animals, Turtle Back Zoo brought tremendous joy so many ill children that day. They also spent numerous hours helping us film four new stories for the channel. They are the ultimate community partner. Today, May 31, I pass this coin on Tim Morrow, CEO of San Antonio Zoo, who helped us bring the San Diego Zoo Kids channel to Children's Hospital of San Antonio. It is wonderful to know that the channel will bring these children hope, happiness, and healing. Debra Erickson
