Every action we take impacts the Earth.
It is up to us to make that impact for the better.



When you visit the zoo, you are already taking a conservation action. Your zoo admission or membership supports our conservation mission. Your time at the zoo is a chance to learn, care and join us in further action. Here are just some ways the Woodland Park Zoo community is getting involved and making a difference for wildlife.


Quarters for Conservation

See animals, save wildlife. It’s that simple with Quarters for Conservation. Every time you visit the zoo, you have the chance to vote for the conservation project you want to support. Together, your votes can have a big impact.

Save Animals Facing Extinction

Did you know 96 elephants are killed every day in Africa? The U.S. is the second biggest market for ivory in the world. This is our problem and we are the solution.

Woodland Park Zoo joins Wildlife Conservation Society and more than 100 zoos and aquariums in the 96 Elephants campaign to stop the killing, stop the demand, and stop the trade. Will you join the herd?
