VISION KEEPERS

Keep the vision alive! Vision Keepers at Point Defiance Zoo are a group of philanthropic individuals who help ensure the vitality and excellence of the Zoo. They learn more about wildlife, wild places, the environment and the conservation efforts the Zoo is engaged in both locally and abroad.

Vision Keeper Club members experience the Zoo in unique ways, with opportunities to go behind the scenes to meet our animals and their keepers, learn more about important conservation topics championed by the Zoo, and have fun at exclusive events throughout the year.
