Be a Force for Nature

The Network exists to connect and support young donors who love Woodland Park Zoo and are passionate about advocating for their communities and the planet. Our goal is to create life-long supporters of the zoo by offering burgeoning philanthropists a place to build relationships with each other and contribute to their community.

Become a networker and be a force for nature!

When you become a networker, your philanthropic support goes towards Woodland Park Zoo’s Saving Species Impact Fund (SSIF). The SSIF is dedicated to support the zoo’s Wildlife Survival Programs and Conservation Partner programs that help conserve wildlife, preserve fragile habitats and increase public awareness for wildlife and environmental issues. The zoo currently conducts or supports more than 35 wildlife conservation projects taking place in the Pacific Northwest and around the world. At least twice per year, we will keep you updated on the status of these projects through the newsletter and how your gifts support them.
