ZOO SAFARI USA MAKES AN IMPACT ON YOUNG LIVES
Over the years the staff of Zoo Safari USA have asked ourselves, “Have we made an impact with our educational programs”, the answer is yes.
On January 1, 2016 a young man informed Director, Maria Jinks, that because of Zoo Safari USA coming to the classroom he has gone on to college and is studying to become an Environmental Conservationist. His goal is to work for the state of Oklahoma and study bats.
Zoo Safari USA is dedicated to educating and inspiring children about the natural world, not just in Oklahoma or the United States but around the world.
By donating just $5.00 dollars you can help Zoo Safari USA continue its goal of educating and inspiring children about the natural world and its wildlife.
To donate you can go to the donate tab at the top of this page and choose your donation amount.
When you donate, you make a difference!
Over the last 25 years we have educated people from ages 7 years to 77+ years. Each time we visit a assisted living facility, school, daycare, birthday parties or special events it is always exciting for us and for those we meet and educate. For us to see a child’s face light up when Cooper the Fennec Fox is brought out, or when they get to hold Rosie the Red Tail Boa and their smile gets so big it fills the room, it brings such joy to our hearts.
Our mission is not just to go out to schools, daycare’s, and special events, but to have Zoo Safari USA become a teaching zoo. Where we can educate students on the day to day operations of a zoo, taking care of the needs of different species of animals, educating visitors, exhibit design and school lectures.
IF WE DO NOT GET THE DONATIONS NEEDED WE WILL HAVE TO SHUT THE GATES!!!
With your donation we can continue our mission and move forward. So Please donate today, every dollar counts.
