Saving Wildlife and Protecting Wild Places
The Maryland Zoo commits to saving wildlife and protecting wild places through its numerous and ongoing conservation initiatives. The Zoo is involved in local, regional, and international conservation efforts and contributes a combination of resources, time, expertise, knowledge, and funding. Guided by the Zoo’s Conservation Department, staff conducts original research, participates in field work projects, and supports the work of partner organizations around the world. The Zoo’s six Signature Animal Programs (SAPs) tie exceptional in-house husbandry, medical care, research, and education programs to conservation action in the field, as described below.
