Zoo Ambassadors


The Blank Park Zoo Ambassadors are a group of philanthropic individuals with a desire to promote the mission of the Blank Park Zoo throughout the State of Iowa. We strive to fund raise and plan Zoo events, participate in volunteer projects, and network and socialize with other like-minded professionals. As a premier support group, the Ambassadors are committed to conservation, education, recreation, and the future of Blank Park Zoo.

  • Ambassadors provide a fun and rewarding social experience, while promoting the advancement of the Blank Park Zoo.
  • Ambassadors enhance the Blank Park Zoo by participating in one activity each year for each area of the Zoo’s mission; education, recreation and conservation.
  • Ambassadors host one event each year with a goal of donor and member cultivation.
  • Ambassadors host one event each with a goal of fund raising for the Zoo.
