Valley Zoo Development Society

The Valley Zoo Development Society’s (VZDS) mission is to raise funds and promote awareness to ensure the continued development of the Valley Zoo.

This is achieved through the events and various programs that the VZDS runs throughout the year. Currently there are three fundraising events that the VZDS organizes; Zoofest, Campin for the Critters and Art in the Wild. Programs that the VZDS run include the Adopt an Animal program and Lucy the Elephant Art.

Each year the VZDS donates thousands to the Edmonton Valley Zoo for development and continual improvement. Past projects that the VZDS has contributed to include the elephant house, the red panda exhibit, the lemur habitat, upgrades to the Zoo veterinary clinic and upgrades to the big horned sheep exhibit.

The VZDS also donates money to various charities including the Elephant Foundation and Snow Leopard Trust.

Recently the VZDS has committed to raising over $8 million dollars to fund the Natures Wild Back Yard portion of the Valley Zoo Revitalization project.
