Zoo Miami's commitment to worldwide conservation efforts serves as the cornerstone of our mission to encourage an appreciation for the world's wildlife and to help conserve it for future generations. From significant research and special studies being conducted right here in South Florida to field conservation efforts in some of the most remote and exotic places on earth, Zoo Miami, a fully accredited member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) , is recognized as a leader in the fight to preserve some of the world's most endangered animals and ecosystems.
Many of Zoo Miami conservation and research efforts are spearheaded by the Zoo's own dedicated professionals. In other cases, the Zoo directly supports programs around the globe led by world-renowned conservation organizations and conservation experts. In all cases, we form critical partnerships with other scientists, conservationists and governmental and non-governmental organizations to help save the endangered plants, animals and ecosystems of the world.
