Jace Kaplan

Wildlife Heritage Circle member Jace Kaplan’s love for wildlife—and for the Bronx Zoo—spans generations and began during his childhood when he lived within walking distance and came to the park at least monthly with his parents and grandparents who all lived in the same building across the street. Jace continues to carry on this tradition, sharing his deep and longstanding connection to WCS with his own family by frequently visiting the zoo with his daughter and two grandchildren. Jace has enlightened many regarding the extent of WCS’s work, shedding light on our conservation efforts in the field and zoological parks by introducing WCS to his friends and neighbors by inviting them to events, telling stories, and passing on our publications. His extraordinary commitment to WCS is bolstered by a generous bequest, and we are truly grateful for his unyielding support.
