AFB International receives the Saint Louis Zoo Foundation award

AFB International was honored to receive the 2019 Saint Louis Zoo Foundation award. Michelle Sandau, Director of Research and Development, accepted the award on AFB’s behalf at the 28th Annual Marlin Perkins Society Celebration. 

Accompanying Michelle at the event were AFB employees Sarah Anderson, Becca Calvin, Debbie Francis, Jamie Klein, Punya Mohapatra, David Ullrich and Chenglan Yan.  AFB appreciates the opportunity to contribute to philanthropic activities in our community.  In alignment with these efforts, AFB has maintained a relationship with the Saint Louis Zoo since 2007. Our partnership consists of monetary contributions as well as employee volunteerism.  AFB’s contributions have sponsored children with special needs to participate in Camp KangaZoo and Camp Joey.

In addition, our employees have consistently worked with the Zoo to assist in its animal welfare and conservation education endeavors.  One popular employee volunteer opportunity is the Box Turtle Project to raise awareness of conservation in rural and urban areas. We are honored to be recognized and look forward to our continued relationship with the Saint Louis Zoo.
