Conservation at the Zoo and Around the World

2019-20 Annual Appeal

Conservation at the Zoo and Around the World

The staff at the Zoological Society of Milwaukee and the Milwaukee County Zoo are dedicated to caring for animals at the Zoo and in the wild. The Zoological Society’s goal this year is to raise money to support conservation efforts in Milwaukee and around the world.

What are some of the animals studied around the world?

Giraffes in Namibia

“Seeing the wild versions of our animals, their habitats and the threats they face can spur us to work harder to get our conservation message out.”
- Joan Stasica, pachyderm supervisor

  • Polar bears in Churchill, Manitoba, Canada
  • Iguanas in the Caribbean
  • Humboldt penguins in Peru and Chile
  • Orangutans in Indonesia
  • Giraffes in Namibia
  • African elephants in South Africa
  • Migratory birds in Milwaukee, Wisconsin
  • Tapirs and jaguars in Belize
  • Great apes and heart disease in North America

We need to raise funds for keeper research studies and other conservation initiatives of the Society and Zoo. Understanding animals in the wild creates a better understanding of animals in our Zoo.
