The Problem

To talk about the importance of conservation to over 15,000 Sacramento Zoo visitors by engaging visitors at public education and activity stations.

Our Plan

In 2013, the Teen’s main job at the Sacramento Zoo is to work public education stations to teach visitors about wildlife conservation. In addition to working public education stations teens will volunteer at several zoo events, including; Museum Day, Earth Fest, Zoo Zoom, Where the Wild Kids Are, Summer Camp, Family Overnight Safari’s, Twilight Thursdays, Ice Cream Safari, Boo at the Zoo, and Holiday Magic. In addition to working zoo events, the teens organize, create, and implement the I Heart Sacramento Zoo enrichment event. In 2013, nearly 3,000 visitors attended I Heart Sacramento Zoo. In addition to general zoo admission, visitors get to see the animals enjoy all of the teen made enrichment and listen to the teens give enrichment talks at 13 different animal exhibits.
