Conservation Captains

NC Zoo Green logoEstablished in 1994, a group of Zoo employees meet monthly to find ways to reduce reuse and recycle waste materials. The cross-functional group is composed of employees representing all levels, locations, and work units at the Zoo. 

Each year the Conservation Captains develop a work plan and use committees and monthly meetings to accomplish its goals. This group sponsors employee awareness meetings, Earth Day, an Annual "Use Less Stuff Sale", and Adopt-A-Highway activities.
