Remembering Betty White's advocacy for animal welfare

LSC News

Like the rest of the world, we spent New Year’s mourning the loss of the First Lady of Television, Betty White.

During her career that spanned seven decades – from “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” to “The Golden Girls” and beyond – White was also known as a strong advocate for animal welfare. Most notably, White was heavily involved with the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association (GLAZA), the nonprofit partner of the Los Angeles Zoo, and became chair of the GLAZA board in 2010.

In honor of Betty White’s 100th birthday this month, consider making a donation to support the animals at Liberty Science Center. A $15 donation will provide two meals for the turtles. $25 will feed the critically endangered cotton-top tamarin monkeys for one week. $100 will cover food and supplies for the naked mole rats for one month.
