LOS ANGELES (AP) - Betty White's Hollywood renaissance now
extends to the animal kingdom.

The 88-year-old actress has been named chairwoman of the Greater
Los Angeles Zoo Association.

In the announcement posted Wednesday on the association's
website, White says promoting animal well-being is the most
important thing she does.

She has worked with the zoo for 46 years and was honored at
June's Beastly Ball by the association, a nonprofit that raises
money for the zoo and its causes.

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa named her "Ambassador to the Animals
of the City of Los Angeles" in 2006.

White has had a high-profile year that has included a
buzzed-about hosting gig on "Saturday Night Live," the new TV
Land series "Hot in Cleveland" and a lifetime achievement award
from the Screen Actors' Guild.
