Hines' Legal department spent the day volunteering at the Houston Zoo as part of the firm's myCommunity Day initiative. The team was split into two groups, Team Black Bear and Team Cheetah.
Team Black Bear helped construct bedding for female American black bears, Belle and Willow. They also used logs and pipes to build enrichment activities for the bears.
Team Cheetah performed landscape work in the cheetah habitat. As an added bonus, everyone in the department had the opportunity to feed 10 year old cheetah brothers Taji and Kito a diluted solution of goat’s milk, which they thoroughly enjoyed.
This marks the team's second consecutive year volunteering at the zoo.
