Ending Extinction

Conservation happens one animal—and one person—at a time. By sharing stories, working with local communities, investing in science, and rolling up our sleeves, we know that we can end extinction. But we can’t do it without your help.

Roaring Ahead

The San Diego Zoo began as a rescue operation, when Dr. Harry Wegeforth heard the roar of a lion abandoned in a cage after the Panama-California exposition. In the last 100+ years, we’ve been working to connect people and animals in all the ways that matter most. From that one roar, hope was born, and it’s our mission to carry it forward. With the resources and knowledge of the world-famous San Diego Zoo, San Diego Zoo Safari Park, Institute for Conservation Research, hundreds of scientists with decades of experience, and our partners all over the globe, we are set up for something special: we just need you.

Together, we can turn things around.™
