Wild Bunch





Wild Bunch is an intergenerational group dedicated to championing wildlife conservation and bringing community awareness to the mission of Zoo Miami.  As up and coming community leaders, Wild Bunch members experience Zoo Miami from an exclusive perspective through networking opportunities, volunteerism, animal encounters and priority access to Zoo Miami events and adventures.

As the next generation of zoo supporters, Wild Bunch members play a critical role in supporting Zoo Miami Foundation through fundraising, awareness campaigns while extending our volunteer base. Revenue generated by Wild Bunch supports designated improvement projects for the animal residents at Zoo Miami.
