Zoo Update from Director and CEO Denise M. Verret – December 2022

The holiday season is my absolute favorite time of the year. It reminds me of another year gone by and of the opportunity for reflection, as we look back at our progress and impact and renew our spirits for a brand-new year to come—a new year that will bring with it opportunities for continued growth and lasting connections.

Zoo Update from Director and CEO Denise M. Verret – June 2022

Earlier this year, I had the privilege of traveling to Africa for the very first time in my life. The purpose of this trip was to prepare and inform me of the full journey I am going to co-lead in Botswana and Namibia later in the fall as part of the Zoo’s travel program, but what happened was far more incredible than anything I could have imagined.

Zoo Update with Director and CEO Denise M. Verret – April 2022

Spring is one of my favorite seasons of the year – it’s a time of birth and renewal when the natural world around us springs back to life. We also use spring as a time to commemorate our planet and the role we all play in protecting it. As we embark on another year celebrating Earth Day on April 22, I am thinking about how the L.A. Zoo is making a sustainable impact on our planet.
