Welcome to Friends of the Big Bear Alpine Zoo
The Friends of the Big Bear Alpine Zoo’s mission is we strive to support the Big Bear Alpine Zoo by inspiring understanding, respect, and environmentally responsible action of the stewardship of wildlife and wildlife habitat through conservation, education, volunteer support, and fundraising.
The Friends of the Moonridge Zoo was established in 1989 as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. During the July 2012 Board of Directors meeting, the directors agreed to add a DBA and operate as the Friends of the Big Bear Alpine Zoo. The DBA aligns the Friends’ name with the new name for the Moonridge Animal Park, which is the Big Bear Alpine Zoo at Moonridge.
