Since the Toronto Zoo opened,
the global extinction rate has soared from one species per year to 1,095 per year. Some of the species housed at the Zoo no longer exist in the wild. As a result, Toronto Zoo now has a host of conservation, breeding and research programs that are designed to save species from extinction.
Today, the Toronto Zoo has a proven record of successfully breeding endangered species. Every year, animals born at the Zoo as part of organized conservation programs are reintroduced to protect parts of their original habitat. The Zoo's groundbreaking research is respected and used worldwide. The Zoo's award-winning conservation and education programs enrich the lives of participants, and help preserve our local species and ecosystems.
Private donors and government research grants have made the Zoo's research, conservation, and education work possible. But as the need for conservation grows, so does the need for support.
Toronto Zoo Development is dedicated to the financial support of the Toronto Zoo in its efforts to conserve species diversity through conservation, education and research.
