Your visits, membership, and donations help care for the plants and animals here and in the wild!

In addition to providing the highest quality of care for the animals and plants here at the Zoo, Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens is committed to protecting their wild counterparts in native habitats with your help! Stay up to date with our Conservation efforts on our blog.

Our Conservation Strategy has three distinct components:

Biological Hotspots Initiative which features species and habitat-focused projects that leverage landscape-level benefits for biodiversity conservation.

Regional Species Programs which are partnerships with government agencies and NGOs in the conservation, rehabilitation, research, breeding, and repatriation of threatened species native to the southeast US and the Carribean Basin.
