Did you know the Saint Louis Zoo is a world leader in saving endangered species and their habitats? The field conservation branch of the Zoo, the Saint Louis Zoo WildCare Institute, works all over the world and right in our backyard to save animals and their habitats from extinction.

In this program, educators who work closely with the WildCare Institute will take you on a virtual journey to get an in-depth look at one of the many places where we focus our efforts. You will learn about factors affecting animals and their habitats in these regions, how we are helping save species from extinction, and plenty of tools for how YOU can help too! You can learn what it is really like to do field work and conservation science from the experts. We will also visit animals at the Zoo from the same region to see first-hand how they are amazing ambassadors for their species.

Working together, we can create a sustainable future for wildlife and people all around the world. By learning more about conservation in this program, you are taking an important first step to making our planet a better place for all. A portion of the cost of this program will go directly to the WildCare Institute Field Conservation Grant fund.
