Zoo Outreach Organization

The Zoo Outreach Organization describes themselves as "Friends of the Zoo" for South Asian zoos and people active in field studies and conservation. Z.O.O. was founded by Sally Walker in 1985 and is associated with the Species Survival Commission of the IUCN.

The indices for their two publications ZOOS’ Print (zoo and wildlife articles and notes) and ZOO ZEN (old and out of print articles on single subjects such as enclosure design) are on the site. A list of useful resources for educators includes interactive links that take you to documents on interpretation and conservation, and include ‘Developing an education programme around a species or event’, and ‘How to be creative in 10 easy lessons’.
