Inside our Zoos

At the same time you’re visiting our Zoos, we’re studying, sustaining, enriching, and protecting what’s right in front of you. Much of this work happens after hours, behind the scenes or even underground.  Though you can't always see conservation efforts, be assured—they’re all around you.

Animal Care

It’s a Zoo's job to offer animals creative ways to use their natural energy—that’s where enrichment comes in.

AZA Safe: Saving Animals from Extinction

We're proud to support this bold new effort focused on saving species and restoring them to healthy-sized populations in the wild.

Conservation Medicine Program

We're integrating wildlife conservation, research and education through research initiatives here at our Zoos, as well as in local, regional and international programs.

Keeper's Corner

We put our passion for wildlife to work at Zoo New England, and outside Zoo gates, we remain dedicated to conservation both locally and globally.

Organic Garden

Our Organic Garden Project provides organic food and enrichment to Zoo animals sustainably.

Quarters for Conservation

We not only support the conservation and sustainability of wildlife within our Zoo – we put our resources towards goals that matter. And you can play a role!

Saving Siberian Cranes

Through hard work and technical expertise, Zoo New England has offered a successful breeding ground for these rare birds.

Species Survival Plans

Sustainability

We use a variety of methods of sustaining the natural environment right in our Zoos, and our animals benefit from our efforts in some surprising ways!
