Our Mission

Our mission is to improve the quality of the zoological exhibits found in the Phillips Park Zoo.

As a support group for the zoo, the members organize membership drives, fundraisers, and activities at the zoo. All funds raised go back into the zoo to help improve habitats, purchase new animals and educate the community about the zoo. The zoo is a wonderful way for a family to spend time together right here in Aurora. It is also an untapped resource for schools and groups to use to educate about the importance of animals in our world. Our group hopes to help improve the zoo in all aspects.
