See animals.
Save wildlife.

It's that simple with our Quarters for Conservation program, part of every zoo visit. 







Field conservation strategies differ from region to region, species to species, and community to community. But collectively, the impact of the zoo’s work with collaborators around the globe is making a more sustainable world for people, wildlife and the landscapes we share.

Working with conservationists and researchers, Woodland Park Zoo focuses on a conservation strategy that includes: habitat and species conservation, research, education, local capacity building and community support.

These effective collaborations are divided among three field conservation programs at the zoo:

Living Northwest - Northwest Butterfly Recovery

Living Northwest

Woodland Park Zoo supports projects in the Pacific Northwest through its Living Northwest, including projects focused on native raptors, turtles, butterflies, frogs and carnivores, and the shrub-steppe, wetlands and forest habitats they depend on to survive.
