Conservation is an important word at the zoo. It is part of the zoo’s mission and goals to focus on conservation and involvement at all levels in restoration, preservation and reintroduction programs.
Your Akron Zoo plays an active role in several conservation projects by committing funds, staff time and exhibit space in support of these programs. The zoo designates 1 percent of all gate receipts and donations from the wishing well to the Akron Zoo’s Conservation Fund. The monies from this fund are used to support field research, preserve habitat and develop education programs.
