Conservation is integral to the Sacramento Zoo mission.

Many of the species we care for are facing enormous challenges across the globe. The zoo’s dedicated staff was recently given a unique opportunity to make a difference outside of their daily work at the zoo.

The Sac Zoo focused its 2021 conservation efforts on 16 conservation programs supporting species represented here at the Zoo.

Together with zoo staff, and with the help of donors, members, and zoo visitors, the Sacramento Zoo has a global impact on wildlife conservation.
