Palm Beach Zoo Receives $80,000 Conservation Leadership Lecture Series Grant from Bank of America

The Palm Beach Zoo has received an $80,000 grant in support of our award-winning Conservation Leadership Lecture Series from corporate sponsor Bank of America.

“We are so proud to support the conservation initiatives of Palm Beach Zoo,” said Stephanie Glavin, Vice President – Palm Beach County Market Manager – Enterprise Business & Community Engagement at Bank of America. “This partnership allows Bank of America the opportunity to partner with another green organization and that is a huge win for educators and the environment.”

It should come as no surprise that the $80,000 grant, which will support two years of programming for the conservation leadership series, was drawn on a dry-erase, re-usable check.

“Addressing global conservation efforts and wildlife issues speaks to the core of our mission and reason the Palm Beach Zoo and Conservation Society exists,” said Andrew Aiken president and CEO of the Palm Beach Zoo. “We look forward to another exciting lineup of internationally acclaimed scientists, explorers, and conservationists.”

Palm Beach Zoo’s Conservation Leadership Lecture Series allows the Zoo to bring in outside professionals to have in-depth conversations about conservation. The series won FAU’s 2016 Environmental Education Program of the Year award for inspiring participants to become engaged, informed citizens of South Florida and stewards of our natural world.
