San Diego Zoo Global

A Conservation Organization

San Diego Zoo Global is a conservation organization dedicated to the science of saving endangered species worldwide. San Diego Zoo Global operates three world-class facilities: the San Diego Zoo, the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, and the San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation Research. Our conservation work takes place locally at these three campuses and reaches beyond to more than 100 conservation field projects in 35 countries. Our organization’s vision is to become a world leader at connecting people to wildlife and conservation. We take an innovative and multidisciplinary approach to some of the most daunting conservation challenges of our time, and we have succeeded with many species. We have reintroduced 33 species back into the wild including: mountain yellow-legged frogs, 5 species of reptiles, 17 species of birds, and 10 species of mammals. In many cases, these efforts have meant the difference between extinction and survival.

Bringing Species Back from the Brink of Extinction

San Diego Zoo Global is committed to generating, sharing, and applying scientific knowledge vital to the conservation of animals, plants, and habitats worldwide. Through our conservation work, we hope to create a future in which people and wildlife can thrive together. And you can help by joining our San Diego Zoo Global Wildlife Conservancy as a Conservation Hero or Conservation Guardian. Your support can help us bring endangered species back from the brink of extinction and provide a consistent and reliable source of funding that allows us to strengthen our wildlife field work and scientific research around the world.
