Save Wildlife

As a conservation organization, our goal is to shape a better future for wildlife, humans, and our shared world. It is the heart of who we are and what we do. From innovative animal care to inspiring personal connections; from education and advocacy to building and cultivating lasting partnerships rooted in equity; from leading conservation efforts throughout the world to empowering Angelenos to connect to nature in their own spaces, our work is to conserve and protect the health and wellness of our shared planet for all. We are your Los Angeles Zoo.

Conservation Strategic Plan

The Los Angeles Zoo is launching its first-ever Conservation Strategic Plan. Starting in Griffith Park and extending around the globe, we are expanding our efforts to protect species and the habitats we share by focusing on six key areas, strengthening our partnerships, and engaging our diverse communities. Join us to create a just and sustainable world where people and wildlife thrive, together.
