As environmental stewards, we strive to sustain natural resources and our environment for future generations and educate people on how they can do the same. We encourage responsible use and protection of the natural environment through conservation and sustainable practices. The Redwood Coast Chapter of the American Association of Zoo Keepers does this by participating in green practices including but not limited to: recycling everything we possibly can, composting, tree plantings, educational activities on sustainable palm oil production, reduction of our own carbon footprint by utilizing local businesses, and of course supporting conservation projects both locally and internationally.

International Coastal Cleanup Day
Every September we participate in the annual International Coastal Cleanup Day and work hard to make our world a cleaner, better place! Coastal Cleanup Day celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2015 and continues to grow bigger and better every year. Last year alone, our small group of volunteers cleaned up over 100 pounds of trash from the North Jetty!
