New @ The Zoo
Meet The Animals
On Wednesday October 9, 2013, join us for the Feed Your Wildlife Conservation Gala. Our special guest Dr. Iain Douglas-Hamilton’s groundbreaking study of elephant behavior in Tanzania paved the way for elephant research and conservation today. Please join us as we partner with Dr. Douglas-Hamilton and Save the Elephants on this critical issue.
The Photo Ark is a collection of unique animals (some taken here at the Houston Zoo!) by National Geographic photographer, Joel Sartore. The photo Ark’s compelling images encourage viewers to save animals from extinction.
Learn how small groups of committed individuals are helping wild lions in Africa. The Lion Species Survival Plan (SSP), with support from the Houston Zoo and Denver Zoo, launched this conservation campaign about the threats lions face in the wild and how to help. We hope that you will consider supporting one of the important projects highlighted here.
