Saving wildlife and protecting wild places.


Positively impact the conservation of wildlife for future generations through our dedication and unique expertise gained working with animals to save species from extinction in their native environments.

The Maryland Zoo also aims to tie exceptional in-house husbandry, medical care, research, and education programs to conservation action in the field with our SAPs (Signature Animal Programs), CAPs (Conservation Action Programs), and Wildlife Response Fund (short-term urgent and emergency needs in the field).
