intersession2017 conservationAmbassadors COVER

A perennial favorite, Conservation Ambassadors returns this year to offer a host of activity sessions, including: Desert magic, Where Animals Call Home, Vanished, Wild America, Amazing Animal Adaptations, and Under the Canopy.



Session Led By: Conservation Ambassadors (David, Lisa, and Samantha Jackson)

Conservation Ambassadors’ mission is giving a worldwide voice to wildlife by providing a permanent, loving home for displaced, abused, abandoned, or permanently injured wild and exotic animals. Through our “Zoo to You” outreach program, we share these animal ambassadors with school children and learners of all ages to educate them about conservation, connect them to the wild world, and inspire them to protect the planet.

David’s passion for wildlife and desire to educate and inspire conservation worldwide is what led him to establish Conservation Ambassadors 25 years ago. His passion started in high school with jobs in animal care and training dogs and parrots. His unique experiences inspired him to pursue a career in the animal care field, and he went to work in the zoological medicine department at UC Davis Veterinary Teaching Hospital. His dedication and interest in wildlife and wild places led him to attend Moorpark College in California, a facility certified by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, where he earned a degree in exotic animal training and zoological management. David has traveled around the world to assist with wildlife conservation efforts. Over his career, he has received numerous awards for animal welfare, zoo management, education, and training.
