Point Defiance AAZK

Dedicated to Conservation

Our zookeepers are dedicated to conservation even outside of their jobs at the Zoo The Point Defiance chapter of the American Association of Zookeepers (AAZK) is a group of Point Defiance Zoo staff and volunteers who raise money for conservation and professional development in their free time.

Join them for a conservation social event — from Wild for Wolves to Sippin’ for Salmon. Each event venue donates a portion of the evening’s proceeds to the identified endangered species. These conservation social events have raised over $25,000 since 2011, with all funds donated directly to conservation efforts!

Do you want to meet Point Defiance zookeepers, enjoy refreshing beverages and just relax with friends, all in the name of conservation? Then all you have to do is show up at the next event and say hi!
