A fundraising walk through the Zoo benefiting GLAZA and the Los Angeles Zoo on Saturday, February 25, 2023

About Walk for the Wild

Introducing the L.A. Zoo’s first-ever in-person fundraising walk in support of the Zoo’s vital mission to save wildlife and wild places. Benefiting the Zoo and its nonprofit partner, the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association (GLAZA), Walk for the Wild is an adventure of discovery and meaning that starts from the moment a participant registers to become a Walker. Registration is opening soon!

Walkers will learn about efforts to save threatened animal species around the world while getting inspiration and information to boost peer-to-peer fundraising and team recruitment. At the event on February 25, a moving opening ceremony will get the crowd energized for a journey through the Zoo’s lush grounds, with views of elephants, giraffes, and more. At the end of the route, Walkers can relax and recharge at the Walk for the Wild Village.

How your participation helps

When you participate in Walk for the Wild, you’re supporting the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association (GLAZA) and L.A. Zoo. Through your participation and generosity, you are helping to make the world a better place, starting with your own backyard. Did you know that one of the Zoo’s most important conservation programs—the effort to save southern mountain yellow-legged frogs from extinction—is happening in our own San Gabriel Mountains? Walk for the Wild is your chance to step up and demonstrate your belief in the Zoo’s mission to save species and provide a safe and inspiring place for our community to build a relationship with nature. GLAZA works tirelessly—every day—to promote that mission. Your participation in the Walk ensures that the Zoo’s conservation initiatives continue, and that GLAZA has the resources to go the extra mile in supporting the Zoo, so that future generations will continue to experience the joy of wild things and wild places.


For sponsors, this unique event offers the opportunity to reach an engaged audience, align with the Zoo’s urgent mission, and build morale and meaningful bonds among staff. Join us in going the distance for wildlife. Join Walk for the Wild.
