SAVING ANIMALS BY HELPING PEOPLE
At Denver Zoo we passionately commit our expertise and resources to saving animals worldwide. Denver Zoo believes animal conservation is as much about people as it is about wildlife and saves animals by inspiring and helping people through collaborative work in local communities. Since 1996, the zoo has participated in more than 600 projects in 62 countries on six continents and commits more than $1.5 million annually to field conservation.
To achieve Denver Zoo’s mission, the Conservation Biology Department works with communities, local governments and various non-governmental organizations to develop innovative solutions to conservation issues around the world. While Denver Zoo has supported projects on every continent except Antarctica, we focus our resources in eight regions where much of our staff’s field work takes place.
