Roots and Shoots
Conservation in World Wide
About the Organization
An international organization founded by Dr. Jane Goodall to promote conservation leadership and action among young people, this powerful, youth-driven network fosters a fun, flexible and supportive environment where kids and adults alike come together to share ideas and inspiration, implement successful community service projects and participate in special events and global campaigns.
Oakland Zoo Takes Action
At the Oakland Zoo, all of the Teen Wild Guides are affiliated with Roots & Shoots. Each semester, teens have the opportunity to earn their hours by participating in 3-4 Roots & Shoots activities. In the past, we have raised money for refugees in Tanzania, created pollinator habitats, participated in beach clean-ups, and assisted in sending thousands of pencils to students in Africa for environmental education.
