Join the Hive
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.
Our work would not be possible without the generous donations and support from people like you who share our vision of a more innovative and creative future. We welcome you to become part of our global community of volunteers, sponsors, and other supporters. Together, we can shape the future today!
