American Association of Zookeepers
Our own local chapter, The California Desert Chapter of AAZK, was founded in 2004, here at The Living Desert. Our membership includes staff from the Animal, Education, and Garden departments, as well as many docents and general volunteers. By holding events during the season, we've been able to raise money to support our local chapter. The garage sale, "Love at the Zoo", "Grapes for Grevy's", Earth Day and other events have all been successful thanks to the hard work and dedication of chapter members. Monies raised have helped send Living Desert zookeepers to AAZK National Conferences, as well as support a variety of local and international conservation efforts.
We have several community events planned throughout the year. Please check back for more information and additions to our lineup, or call 760-346-5694 ext. 2212 for more information.
