Our research mission is to significantly contribute to the conservation of threatened species through applied scientific research. We collaborate with various universities and external researchers to increase collective knowledge of the natural world.

Perth Zoo has fostered research for many years. Our position of importance in Perth, the expertise of our staff and the conservation/environmental imperatives facing our world ensure that the Zoo is well-placed to take a lead role as a conservation, research and learning institution.
