Saving Species

Learn about the Phoenix Zoo’s role in one of the greatest conservation
success stories of our time.

Big Cats of Arizona

The Zoo’s initiative is to install a new, $3.2 million Big Cats of Arizona habitat, featuring the mountain lion and jaguar. This 20,000 square foot installation will provide ample space for these intriguing desert cats and facilitate guest viewing unlike current exhibits on the Arizona Trail. 



Phoenix Zoo conservation scientists raise and breed species at the Zoo’s Arthur L. and Elaine V. Johnson Conservation Center for release to the wild and/or to help understand their biology and reproduction. We also conduct research and participate in field work as part of broader recovery efforts with our partners.
