We are pleased to announce Zoo Advisors is now Canopy Strategic Partners. After more than a decade focused on working with over 150 zoos, aquariums, botanic gardens, and other conservation organizations across the country and around the globe, Canopy is expanding its reach to include even more mission-driven organizations committed to creating a better future for the planet.
“We’re making this change to enable us to better meet the needs of all our clients by broadening our horizons, and expanding to serve more communities in the animal, living collection, conservation and nature spaces. Through this work, we will bring even more expansive thinking to all our clients,” states Zach Winfield, Vice President.
Canopy will maintain the same core team of experts and will continue to provide key services in planning, leadership, and economics, while building and expanding both its network of experts and the suite of services it provides. This rebrand intentionally enables Canopy Strategic Partners to bring broader, more diverse perspectives and insights to its work.
Lori Perkins, Vice President, explains the meaning behind the name Canopy: “A canopy is a diverse, organic network that supports the growth and development of other ecospheres. This name illustrates our passion for helping organizations foster powerful connections within their community, building networks of experts, elevating leaders, and creating strong roots for the long-term growth of our partners.”
“The Canopy name reflects what David and his team consultants have always been doing. In their work with Fundación Temaikèn, they have helped us learn, develop a network and build capacity that will be translated in the accomplishment of our goals we have together for making a difference in conservation and leveraging our mission of Protect Nature Together,” said Dario F. Lareu, CEO – Director General, Fundación Temaikèn.
“We’re excited about what’s next as we expand our work championing leaders, making change happen, and building communities. We look forward to continuing to engage with our clients and partners to grow their organizations and strengthen their impact,” said David Walsh, President.
