Conservation in Action

Making a difference takes teamwork. Whether someone is in the field working to save Grevy’s zebra or shopping with reusable bags, everyone is capable of taking action to help animals and our planet.

Here are ways we take conservation action:

Our Zoo experts and partners help endangered animals here in Missouri and across the world. The Saint Louis Zoo WildCare Institute focuses on “conservation hotspots” that address animals and communities in the most need.

We promote sustainability as well as put it into action. As part of our Zoo’s daily operations, we focus on protecting the environment through a range of waste reduction and energy and water conservation initiatives on our campus.

One of our goals is to inspire people to take action to help animals. We offer a variety of references to help people make wildlife-friendly choices in their homes, workplace, school and community.
