HOWL: Helping Our WildLife

Location: Tropic World and Seven Seas

Date: Saturday, September 17, 2022

The Chicago Zoological Society Associates is a volunteer group of dedicated young professionals who share an interest in animals and conservation. As Society ambassadors, they support CZS through fundraising events, conservation education, and advocating public awareness for the zoo's animals, research, fieldwork, and education programs. Associates provide an essential role in assisting CZS and its future, and further define the CZS Associates' role and responsibilities supporting a leading zoological institution in the 21st century.
