Zoobilee, a black-tie fund raising event at the Pt. Defiance Zoo & Aquarium, traditionally featured a zoo animal as part of the event theme. 2008 featured the Canadian Lynx as illustrated by Bethany Maines with a design concept by Juel Lugo. Two concepts were provided, each featuring a very different look for the lynx. In the end The Zoo Society selected a more zoological look for their winter themed event.
