Conserving species around the world

Since 1993, Zoo staff members have been instrumental in developing seven distinct non-profits dedicated to species conservation. The foundations capitalize on unique partnerships with corporations, universities, conservation centers, private individuals and other zoos. The results have been tremendous, providing more than $7 million to date for species conservation programs worldwide. Our foundations boast volunteer boards, few staff and minimal administrative overhead costs. As a result, funds raised to support the Zoo’s conservation mission are channeled directly to the places and programs where they are needed most.
