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.
We are thrilled that L.A. Zoo Lights is returning beginning November 18, 2022, as L.A. Zoo Lights: Animals Aglow. “L.A.’s brightest winter tradition” will be all new in 2022—reimagined as a spectacular wonderland of glowing lanterns depicting animals and plants, a celebration of light and nature all of us can enjoy together. Here’s why that’s so special.
In every season, we remain so grateful to GLAZA members and volunteers for your passionate support of the Zoo’s mission to save species from extinction. Recently, a powerful outpouring of love for your L.A. Zoo made a huge difference for us in our journey toward transforming the Zoo for future guests.
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.
