22q at the Zoo will kick off in Auckland, New Zealand on Sunday, May 22nd, 2022 and continue westward at zoos around the world giving families, friends and professionals a chance to socialize, network and raise public awareness of 22q11.2 syndromes.
Developed by the International 22q11.2 Foundation, volunteers spread awareness at their local or regional zoo by handing out 22q Fact Sheets and educating guests and zoo visitors.
Participants are recognizable by wearing official “22q at the Zoo” red T-shirts and “Ask Me About 22q” buttons.

If there is no zoo in your area, many families often create their own “zoo” in a different location such as a park or playground. You can be creative and use costumes or have guests dress up like different zoo animals.
