Why Nominated: The OC Zoo is proud to nominate David Phillips for the OneOC Spirit of Volunteerism Award. David has been a volunteer at the OC Zoo for well over a year. Three days a week he volunteers at the zoo, assisting the keepers with animal husbandry tasks. Since starting such a short time ago, David has incredibly amassed over 800 hours of volunteer time. He performs many key jobs, which include preparing food for the animals, cleaning and maintaining animal enclosures, and so much more. David is an extremely hard worker and is always glad to help with any task in any area of the zoo. David is known throughout the zoo as being reliable, dedicated, trust worthy, efficient, and a self-starter. He always arrives happy, upbeat, and with an amazing attitude towards life. David truly loves our animal collection. David’s favorite animals at the zoo are the beavers. He once got very enthusiastic over all of the “sludge” they produced! His spirit and smile can always brighten up anyone’s day. He is truly loved by all the zoo staff, and we are tremendously lucky that he chose us to benefit from his volunteer time.
