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.
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
Zoo New England is proud to support this bold new effort focused on saving species and restoring them to healthy-sized populations in the wild.
We put our passion for wildlife to work at Zoo New England, but outside Zoo gates, we remain dedicated to conservation both locally and globally.
Zoo New England’s Organic Garden Project is a new initiative to provide organic food and enrichment to Zoo animals sustainably.
