Green Eco-Zoo Team
The Green Eco-Zoo Team (GEZT) is a non-technical advisory committee to the General Manager. The organizational structure of the GEZT incorporates all divisions and units of the Zoo and is outlined below:
The GEZT replaced the Environmental Protection Committee that had been in place since 1995. The "Green Team" addresses the environmental impacts of Zoo operations, policies and procedures, and makes recommendations that will lessen our ecological footprint in the Rouge Valley and on the earth. Dave Ireland and Dr. W. Rapley co-chair the GEZT. Members appointed to the committee are from a wide range of Zoo divisions and units. Zoo staff and volunteers are encouraged to address issues concerning our environmental impact on the site.
