Zoo Commission Meetings

The Board of Zoo Commissioners was created in 1997 when the Los Angeles Zoo became its own Department; previously it was part of the Department of Recreation and Parks.

The Commission serves in advisory capacity and is comprised of three members. All are Mayoral appointees whose terms are five years in length. The Commission also consists of an ex officio member which is chosen by the Chair of the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Associations Board of Trustees. The ex officio member serves on the Commission until replaced by the Chair of the Board of Trustees.
