For more and more species of animals and plants, survival is an increasing challenge due to a variety of influences. At the Phoenix Zoo, we believe we have an obligation to help wherever we can and hope others will join in the effort.

We participate in both Local Conservation and Global Conservation. At the local level, we are working to maintain healthy and self-sustaining captive 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. The Zoo supports a number of global programs through our Conservation and Science grants each year. We encourage you to sign up forĀ Conservation & Science News to learn more about the projects the Phoenix Zoo is proud to be a part of.

The Phoenix Zoo is also working on a number of Green Initiatives and we invite you to learn more about How You Can Help. We offer guests a convenient Recycle Your Cell Phone program as just one way to Support Conservation.
