In partnership with #GivingTuesday, #GivingZOODay is a global day of giving designed to bring communities together to celebrate generosity and to give. #GivingZOOday is about the impact zoos and aquariums have on their communities through engaging visitors to be stewards of the environment and save species from extinction. It’s also about how these institutions give back by mentoring their staff and volunteers to support a wide range of causes.
