Wildlife Conservation

Wildlife around the world is threatened by habitat loss, illegal trade and conflict with humans.

Zoos play an important role in international wildlife conservation efforts. Zoos also have the unique opportunity to educate and inspire guests on how animals they see in their communities are ambassadors for those in the wild.

For more than two decades, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo has been a leader in conservation by advising and funding partners in the field who are working to protect species most at risk around the world.

What we help fund: Six Key Programs

The Zoo has an exemplary track record of identifying emerging leaders in field conservation and promoting global efforts by building capacity and fostering their talents. Many current partners received early financial backing from the Zoo Society and strategic in-kind and programmatic support from Zoo staff. Relationships between Zoo staff and field partners directly benefit the Cleveland community, too: Conservation partners visit on a regular basis, delivering community talks and working with Zoo staff in informal settings. With these partners, the Zoo supports, develops and implements unique and collaborative conservation projects that promote wildlife survival, benefit local people and directly address the most vital and emerging threats to wildlife today.
