Snacks for Species


Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium's Senior Guide Youth Volunteers are the creators of the successful Snacks for Species series of fundraisers. Senior Guides are high school age volunteers that have been selected to be a part of this leadership team based on their experience, knowledge, and abilities. 

Stay tuned for next summer's lineup of restaurant takeovers raising money for conservation projects around the world. Each month in the summer, Senior Guides will highlight an animal or conservation issue at a local restaurant. Simply show up on the event date, learn about conservation, and order something to eat. A portion of your food sales will be donated directly to The Zoo Society's Dr. Holly Reed Conservation Fund

With your help, the Snacks for Species program has raised over $2,500 for the Conservation Fund since 2015. Help make next year a success as well!
