The cost to send a bus full of school children to the Zoo for the day is approximately $500. ZooPals is a unique scholarship program available to schools with financial need, such as Title I schools, so that underserved schoolchildren can visit the Zoo.
Funded solely by grants, this special program provides qualified schools and/or groups with free admission and free transportation to the Los Angeles Zoo for a self-directed or docent-guided tour.
ZooPals funding allows recipients (who would otherwise be unable to experience the Zoo) to make a direct connection to nature and animals as they learn important lessons about conservation and ecology.
