Conservation The Denver Zoo

As a leading zoo-based conservation organization, Denver Zoo is fully committed to the care of its animals on its 84-acre campus, as well as the conservation of species all around the world.

Denver Zoo was among the first zoos accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums to lead global field conservation programs. The Zoo started working in Mongolia in 1998 and has worked to expand its wildlife conservation efforts ever since.

Today the Zoo commits nearly $2 million each year in support of on-campus research and field conservation programs in Mongolia, Vietnam, Peru and here in the Rocky Mountain/Great Plains region of the U.S.

One of the programs Denver Zoo leads here in Colorado is the Colorado Pika Project. The Zoo partners with Rocky Mountain Wild to study American pika, a small, mountain-dwelling relative of the rabbit that is believed to be an indicator of certain impacts of climate change on alpine ecosystems.

In addition to its core conservation programs, Denver Zoo has dedicated staff, funding or both to support more than 600 conservation projects in 62 countries over the past 25 years. These projects include rescue and rehabilitation efforts, and initiatives to reduce conflict between animals and humans.

Here at home, the Zoo actively participates in Species Survival Plans in collaboration with other accredited zoos. These programs help the survival of many threatened, endangered and critically endangered species by keeping populations within zoos and aquariums healthy, diverse and abundant.
