Conserving Our Local Biodiversity
The Zoological Society of Milwaukee’s Conservation Department is proud to be located in Southeastern Wisconsin, an area designated as critical habitat for species of top conservation priority. Our work supports the preservation of natural habitats and conservation of endangered native species in partnership with other organizations. Together, we are committed to bolstering and conserving our local biodiversity. Staff at the Society work with experts in the field to learn about, and protect, our urban wildlife and important pollinators including the endangered rusty patched bumblebee and Poweshiek skipperling butterfly!
