“Riverbanks is in its second year as a member of San Diego Zoo Global Academy (SDZGA). The SDZGA has provided a great platform for consistent and high quality educational opportunities in terms of both its core curriculum and its Do It Yourself (DIY) function. I recommend it to any institution that is looking for an efficient and cost effective way to train staff and volunteers.”
