The Sacramento Zoo is proud to present a completely redesigned website! And we want you to be a part of it.
After 10 years with our old site, we have a whole new look and feel for saczoo.com. Here are some highlights:
- Main navigation menu to allow for easier exploring
- Login features give you access to your giving history, profile and address updates and email preferences
- Exclusive areas for Members, Docents, Volunteers, Zoo Parents and more!
- Weekly video and slideshow (this is where you come in!)
But to make it great, we need you to help us! We are inviting Sacramento Zoo lovers to make a 30 second video we will post on the new website. We will also send you a lovely 100% organic cotton Sacramento Zoo canvas bag as a thank you. While supplies last.
Here is what you need to do:
1. Pick one of the following statements to finish:
I love my Sacramento Zoo because...
My favorite Sacramento Zoo animal is...
My favorite Sacramento Zoo memory is...

2. Create a 30 second video of yourself, your kids, friends or other family members finishing one statement. (Remember to start your video with the phrase you picked and then finish it with your story)
