According to a recent press release by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), nearly 90% of Americans are willing to help save animals from extinction but are unsure of how to help.

Keep reading below for AZA's top ways you can help protect endangered species.

Voice Your Concerns

Currently, several pieces of legislation have been introduced in Congress that would reduce support for endangered species. Americans can raise their voices today against these efforts and others here.

Visit a Zoo or Aquarium

Americans may be willing to travel 300 miles to help save endangered species, but they don’t need to. Of the 6,000 species at AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums, approximately 1,000 are currently threatened or endangered, and most Americans on average live fewer than 40 miles from an AZA-accredited zoo or aquarium. A portion of admission at many AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums supports saving endangered species. Find a zoo or aquarium near you. Live in or near Cleveland? Become a member and support endangered species every day! Members also receive discounted admission to other AZA zoos in North America.
