Our Mission

Our conservation efforts

The Zoo sends dozens of employees across the globe to conduct research, participate in animal rehabilitation and implement conservation programs to better the lives of animals and ecosystems. The Zoo doesn’t forget about its own backyard though, as our Wild Toledo program does unique conservation work in northwest Ohio. As a visitor, member, volunteer or employee at the Zoo, it is easy to see and appreciate the world-renowned conservation efforts put forth by the Toledo Zoo.
