The Valley Zoo Development Society is a very small charity with a VERY big goal. We want to save the planet and everyone on it. Modest really. We want to save species, educate children about the animals we share the planet with, educate adults about conservation and environmental awareness – and we do that in one very simple way – by supporting the revitalization of the Edmonton Valley Zoo.
The first part of our commitment to Phase III Nature’s Wild Backyard is due December 31st. We will be cutting a 1.5 million cheque so part 1 of this amazing phase can be completed! We have 1.3 million dollars and we need YOUR help to build our zoo. We need to raise $200,000 before the end of the year!
We need your help!!
ADOPT AN ANIMAL
The Valley Zoo Development Society’s Adopt an Animal program inspires people to improve and enrich the lives of the animals in the Edmonton Valley Zoo’s care. Adopting one of our special animals provides vital funding for improved habitats and enrichment materials. Absolutely anyone can become an Adopt an Animal parent and help to cultivate the nurturing environment and inspiration our animals deserve.
This summer, adopt a special friend and discover the joy of our Adopt An Animal Program!
BECOME A VALLEY ZOO AMBASSADOR
Children are fascinated by the natural world, especially by animals. By providing them with a fun setting in which they can learn about nature, we can create lifelong ambassadors for the long-term health of all species on our planet.
As part of the revitalization of the Edmonton Valley Zoo, the original footprint of the ‘Storyland Valley Zoo’ will soon be transformed into an interactive space, called Nature’s Wild Backyard, which will feature animal experiences in their most natural setting. The Valley Zoo Development Society has made a commitment to raising nine million dollars in support of this project.
We need individual and corporate champions to help make Nature’s Wild Backyard a reality. We cannot do this without your support.
We are looking for individuals who are passionate about making Edmonton a better place for its residents and visitors, and those who want to play a vital role in inspiring new generations of earth ambassadors who care about and are committed to preserving our planet.
We are looking for ambassadors to help raise awareness and funds for this incredible education and conservation facility in our community.
As a Valley Zoo ambassador, you will commit to:
- raising $5,000
- making 5 community connections
- hosting a third party fundraising event
We invite you to join us as a Valley Zoo Ambassador to help us re-energize our zoo and create a space that inspires future generations.
To learn more about the role of the ambassadors or to pledge your support in this role, please contact us.
“LEAF” A LEGACY
The Edmonton Valley Zoo has been the scene of many fond memories for countless families and many generations. Now, you can give these memories permanent recognition, and help support the revitalization of the Edmonton Valley Zoo, by having your name or the name of a loved one, engraved on a leave on our Eterni-tree. By purchasing a leaf, you help guarantee that future generations will be able to visit “Nature’s Wild Backyard” and see your commitment to helping build, not only our zoo but our community.
Our goal is to have five of these beautiful trees located throughout the property, for a fundraising total of $2 million dollars.
