Make A Donation

The Adopt-A-School program provides educational materials and supplies for the schools in rural Amazonia through donations from individuals, schools and organizations in the United States and around the world. Since 1999, the Detroit Zoological Society has partnered with Conservacion de la Naturaleza Amazonica del Peru (CONAPAC) in this conservation and educational program.

One hundred percent of all donations made to the Adopt-A-School program are used by CONAPAC to purchase school supplies in Iquitos, Peru, thus supporting the local economy, reducing purchasing costs and eliminating shipping costs. Donations are also used to fund workshops that help teachers and community leaders promote sustainable lifestyles to protect the natural resources of the Amazon rainforest.
