For many animal and plant species, survival is an increasing challenge due to a variety of influences. At the Phoenix Zoo, we believe we have an obligation to help conserve wherever we can and encourage others to join in the effort.

The Zoo participates in both local and global conservation. At the local level, we are working to maintain healthy and self-sustaining managed setting populations of multiple endangered species natively found throughout Arizona. On a global scale, we start with you. Our mission is to provide experiences that inspire people and motivate them to care for the natural world. We also support a number of global programs through our Conservation and Science grants each year.

Green Initiatives are also a big part of life at the Zoo. We invite you to learn more about How You Can Help, like the Recycle Your Cell Phone program.
