As a conservation organization, everything we do has a single unifying goal: to help create a better future for wildlife, humans, and our shared habitat. From the daily care of animals to creating fun experiences that inspire; from education and advocacy to local and global partnerships; from leading species-saving efforts in far-off lands to encouraging Angelenos to appreciate the wonders of their own backyards. It’s all aimed at preserving and protecting wildlife and wild spaces for future generations. And we couldn’t do it without you.
The challenges facing wildlife today are formidable. An increasing human population coupled with inequities in wealth and resources is fueling habitat exploitation, poaching, human-animal conflicts, and climate change. These are global problems that call for solutions that transcend borders and unify us all.
Modern accredited zoos are uniquely equipped to tackle conservation challenges. Our multifaceted, integrated efforts encompass the animals in our care; the communities we inspire; the field work we support; and the data, insights, and expertise we contribute to the global knowledge base focused on saving species.
