From recycling cans, cardboard and manure, to increasing the population of African elephants and rare iguanas, here’s a taste of what the Indianapolis Zoo is doing to ensure the continued conservation of the natural world and wildlife across the globe.
The Global Center for Species Survival amplifies and supports efforts to protect nature. The Global Center team focuses on supporting, connecting and communicating the work and efforts of more than 10,000 conservationists with the Species Survival Commission of the International Union for Conservation of Nature, the worlds largest environmental conservation organization. Made possible through a grant from Lilly Endowment Inc., the Global Center solidifies the Zoo’s efforts to make Indianapolis one of the world’s most conservation-literate cities.
One of the keystones of the Indianapolis Zoo’s commitment to conservation is to support efforts around the world to save wildlife and wild places that are in danger.Learn More
