Volunteer Service

The Zoological Lighting Institute (ZLI) is the only charity of its kind in the world. Our unique mission is to pursue the work that a for-profit company would not be able to. We provide information, tools and solutions for businesses and governments to ensure sustainable and wildlife-friendly development.

For-profit companies need communities, communities need wildlife, and wildlife needs natural light; we are here to ensure that this is not only understood, but acted upon for the economic, cultural and environmental benefits of all life on this planet. Many companies will support their employers, by facilitating volunteer service to charity on a regular basis.  Find out today if you are eligible to recieve such support, we would be happy to welcome your service!
