The Clouded Leopards at the Toronto Zoo are Now Airbnb Hosts

The clouded leopards at the Toronto Zoo are heading on vacation this summer and have decided to become Airbnb hosts to earn while they burn on their trip (sunscreen please!), since a host in the City of Toronto can earn an average of $2308 per month*. When the lemurs cried out they were also in need of a vacay, Airbnb swooped in to connect the family with the clouded leopards to book their open-air treehouse with next-level amenities. To help us give the clouded leopards and lemurs their voices, we teamed up with actor Rachel Bilson. Learn more about their Airbnb story below.

Taking a cue from best host practices, the clouded leopards hired a photographer to make their bright, outdoor place look its best and added special touches that the lemur family would appreciate, including a fresh fruit to snack on, toys for the pups, and a hammock for lounging. Now with the lemurs all settled into their Airbnb, all that’s left to do is hit #vacationmode and relax, just as they do here.

Curious about the listing? Although homo sapien guests won’t be able to stay in the clouded leopards’ treehouse, they are invited to book it for $15 CAD a night to give back. All proceeds from each booking will go to the Toronto Zoo to support their conservation efforts, and Airbnb is getting the donations started by making a $10,000 CAD donation of its own to the Zoo.
