SF Zoo animals go wild over seasonal pumpkin snacks

A truckload of pumpkins were dropped off at the San Francisco Zoo Wednesday morning, providing resident animals with nutritious, edible toys.

The pumpkins were donated by General Manager Clif Clark of the San Francisco Airport Marriott Waterfront—a practice that he started in 2013, after witnessing decorative pumpkins at local hotels go to waste.

The donation isn’t an unusual move for the San Francisco Airport Marriott Waterfront, which implements green practices throughout its operations, and is part of the National Wildlife Federation’s Habitat program.

Swing by the Zoo this week (yes, it’s open on Thanksgiving Day) to see lions, giraffes, grizzly bears, rhinos, hippos and mandrills play with the donated pumpkins.
