Our Mission:
The purpose of the Purdue University Zoological Society is to provide students with an interest in the exotic animal industry an opportunity to explore career options pertaining to zoo, wildlife and exotic animals. The continued existence of zoological parks and aquariums depends upon the education of the public and the respect and appreciation for animals. Our goal is to spread our love and fascination for the wonderful and exotic species of the world.

Who We Are:
We are a specialized student organization for students who share a common interest in wildlife and exotic animals. We are a close-knit group with members from freshmen up to seniors, dedicated officers, and great guest speakers.

What We Do:
The Purdue Zoological Society meets every other Tuesday, and we have interesting guest speakers from many of Purdue's related animal fields, who help us broaden our knowledge. We work closely with many not-for-profit organizations in the area that care for and spread appreciation for wild animals. We take trips to zoos including the Indianapolis Zoo, Brookfield Zoo, and Cincinnati Zoo. We also do vounteer work for the Exotic Feline Rescue Center, Black Pine Animal Park, and Wildcat Wildlife Center, so roll up your sleeves and get ready for up-close experiences!

How to get Involved:
Attend our callout meeting on Tuesday, September 7th at 7pm in SMTH 108
With meetings every two weeks, guest speakers from the industry, and plenty of opportunity to volunteer and gain experience, there are lots of ways you can get involved. Check out our meetings page and our trips/events page to see what's going on this semester, or email an officer to get more information on how to get involved. We look forward to seeing you there!
