The Virginia Zoological Society (VZS), organized in 1979, works to ensure that the Virginia Zoological Park (VZP) thrives as a superior zoological institution, reaching its fullest potential to serve people, animals and the environment. The Virginia Zoological Park seeks to increase understanding of the world’s flora and fauna and to add to the growing body of knowledge about them; to display animals respectfully, in a way that encourages their natural behavior; to conserve animals and their habitats; and to offer opportunities for learning and enjoyment to the public. It will strive to fulfill this mission through education, conservation, research and recreation.
