Adopt-A-School Conservation Expedition
Each April a Detroit Zoo volunteer group joins the CONAPAC staff, accompanied by representatives of the Iquitos Board of Education and the Indiana (Peru) Regional Education Office, in distributing school supplies to Adopt-A-School communities. In 2016 over 3,000 students and teachers in 109 schools in 55 communities received school supplies, thanks to the help of the Detroit Zoo Conservation Expedition team.
If you have any questions or are interested in participating in a future conservation expedition to the Amazon to distribute school supplies, please contact Claire at the Zoo.
We need you! Join us for the 2017 Adopt-A-School deliveries March 25-April 2. To volunteer, fill out this Adopt-A-School Travel Program form at The Detroit Zoo site or contact Claire Lannoye-Hall, our Volunteer Coordinator, directly.
Volunteers stay in world class jungle lodging, operated by Explorama Lodges.
