You Moved. You Grooved. You helped Your BFF. 

Zoo Move & Groove Was A Glowing Success!

Thank you for joining us for Zoo Move & Groove! More than 1,900 athletes enjoyed one last look at ZooLights, while raising money for a good cause. This year’s event featured one of North America’s most endangered animals once thought to be extinct: the black-footed ferret, our BFF.

The Phoenix Zoo is proud to be one of just six black-footed ferret breeding facilities in the world! To date, the Zoo has produced over 500 black-footed ferrets in our 30 years of involvement with the breeding program, with many released into the wild.

Your participation not only supports black-footed ferret conservation, but also helps care for the thousands of animals who call the Zoo home.

WE ARE DEEPLY GRATEFUL FOR YOUR SUPPORT.

Each gift helps make your Zoo better! Whether you are participating in an event like Zoo Move & Groove, becoming a Zoo member, upgrading your membership, giving a gift from the animals’ Wish List or remembering a loved one.

We would love to see you again next year for Zoo Move & Groove. Your feedback is valued and we would like to hear how your 5K experience was this year.  Please consider taking a moment to fill out this brief event survey.

Our Zoo Move & Groove 5K is “glowing” strong!
