Conservation

We exist to inspire and act for wildlife conservation.

Perth Zoo provides hundreds of thousands of people each year with an opportunity to encounter the natural world and contribute to conservation action. But our responsibilities don’t stop there. We are part of a global conservation community working toward species conservation, within our borders and beyond them.

Conservation in Action

Many species in the wild are facing extinction. We work with the local community to raise funds to save threatened species in the wild.

Biodiversity is Us

We are all connected. Biological diversity (ecosystems, species & genetics) is a vital ingredient of human survival and welfare.

Research

Perth Zoo has fostered research for decades. We collaborate with various universities and external researchers to increase collective knowledge of the natural world.  

Veterinary Services

You may not see the work of the veterinary department when you visit Perth Zoo but it plays a very important role behind the scenes.

A Sustainable Zoo

Meeting the needs of our visitors, animals and staff without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. We walk the talk and aim to lessen our environmental footprint in every aspect of Zoo operations.
