Several employees from the Fresno Chaffee Zoo are raising money to help protect nature all around the world.

The Fresno Chapter of the American Association of Zoo Keepers held a yard sale at a home on Wishon near Gettsyburg.

The group is made up of local zoo keepers and other zoo staff members. They money they raised went toward conservation projects, such as research to save endangered animals

"We just want to make sure we can have animals and trees and all the basic stuff we grew up with that's really important to us," said Katie Delorenzo

The group raised about two thousand dollars yesterday and is still tallying the total for today. The members will vote to decide exactly which conservation project will receive the money from this weekend's yard sale.
