Earth Day fits our mission perfectly: To inspire respect for and stewardship of the natural world while creating a quality visitor experience, said Amy Gotliffe, Conservation Director at Oakland Zoo. What could be more inspiring than making a genuine connection with dozens of visiting organizations who work to help animals and the environment? Oakland Zoo is excited to commemorate Earth Day in a fun, fully participatory way. Besides being entertaining, this day-long event is an opportunity for families to learn more about their favorite animals, the Zoos conservation efforts for each species, and how everyone can take action to help wildlife and the earth.
