YOU Can Make a Difference

Join the Phoenix Zoo for a day of conservation fun and learn how your actions can help protect wildlife and wild places!


  • Visit educational “Earth Stations” throughout the Zoo to become a Planet Patrol ZOOper Hero. You’ll learn about:
    • How to reduce, reuse and recycle to stomp out pollution.
    • What animals need to survive and how we can help keep their habitats safe.
    • The food chain and how it keeps our world healthy.
    • Animals that are facing environmental challenges and how you can jump into action and help.
    • The amazing “super” abilities some animals have to protect themselves from predators and competitors.
  • Meet with community partners featuring conservation-minded activities.
  • Participate in the clothing drive located at the Zoo’s entrance curb, just south of the ticket windows. You can unload items directly from your vehicle where they will be sorted into useable clothing, to become rags for commercial use or for fiber recycling.
  • Meet with ZooTeen Conservation and ZooTeen Farm Teams.
  • Visit with members of the Zoo’s Behavioral Enrichment team to create behavioral enrichment for Zoo animals and discuss items that the Zoo reuses to create behavioral enrichment.
  • Celebrate 2015, the Year of the Gibbon
    • Buff-cheeked gibbon training demonstration to showcase their brachiation, time TBD.
    • Behavioral enrichment for the siamangs, time TBD.
  • Watch lady bug releases at one (or all!) of the three scheduled times, times TBD.
  • And more!

All activities included with Zoo admission.
