Mission: The indianapolis zoological society empowers people and communities, both locally and globally, to advance animal conservation.
Programs: The indianapolis zoo is creating a world-class institution that will serve diverse resident and visitor populations from central indiana and beyond. As one of indianapolis' foremost attractions, the zoo fosters the exchange of knowledge and ideas as a national and international resource for research and conservation.
I have been a staff volunteer for the Indy Zoo for about 10 years. Why, because I like the Zoo's mission, their work and support of species survival. The Indianapolis Zoo offers education, events and opportunities for every level of individual interest. The Zoo leaders are forward thinking. Their structure provides a win/win opportunity for the workers, members, donors, visitors, as well as the animals. The Zoo raises awareness about our precious surroundings and from that awareness they allow each of us the opportunity to help make a difference to our planet. My plan is to volunteer for this worthy organization as long as I can.
