At the zoo we dedicate our staff to care for and breed species that, without human intervention, would face certain extinction. We do this work in partnership with 200 other zoos active in the Species Survival Plan Program administered by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. In addition, numerous hands-on conservation projects have recently taken our staff, partners and volunteers to sites in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Wyoming, Canada, and Panama. Our commitment to contributing significantly to conservation science will continue.
