Ice Storm of 2007

In December of 2007, Tulsa was hit by a devastating ice storm, an event none of us could have predicted. Amid the chaos, a handful of dedicated team members, including Jarrod Wyatt, a long-time employee at Tulsa Zoo, found themselves essentially trapped within the zoo’s gates, cut off from the outside world. With record amounts of ice and a crippling loss of electricity, their situation was dire, but their commitment to the animals was unwavering.
