Strategic Plan

Welcome to the Virginia Zoo Strategic Plan Virtual Open House!

Thanks to the many thoughts, ideas, edits and hours of work our staff and board members have put into making this plan a reality. We are excited to finally reveal the draft of our Strategic Plan to everyone for feedback. Below you will find a proposed Mission, Vision, Core Values and 5 Goals with tactics, or objectives to achieve those goals. We are asking you to please carefully read through all of this material and leave your thoughtful feedback in the comment boxes following each area. All comments are encouraged and will be addressed via email by each Goal’s Committee Chair.

Virtual Open House will be available August 18 to August 25.
