Howard G. Buffett Foundation when we were awarded three brand new
Toyota 4X4 vehicles. CCB’s recent growth and a better ability to reach
more rural communities has been matched by greater demands upon an aging vehicle fleet and increasing operating challenges that have followed. This outstanding award now makes it possible (together with fleet operating support from the Predator Conservation Trust, Virginia Safari Park, Panther Ridge, Reston Zoological Park, the Zoological Society of Washington, Cougar Mountain and Richmond Metro Zoo) to forge ahead with scheduled community activities
without being ruled by the vagaries of operating only older
vehicles. This wide recognition of just how important vehicles are to our work, given the scale of investment required, is immeasurable on any usual scale of gratitude, but we thank you all nevertheless!
