Conservation Projects

With support from the L.A. Zoo, organizations around the globe are working to reduce habitat destruction, stop over-hunting, create sustainable conservation programs, and educate people about decreasing animal populations.

In addition to providing financial support, the Zoo contributes volunteers, husbandry expertise, project recommendations, and veterinary services to various conservation efforts worldwide. Learn more about our current and past projects below.
