Zoo Atlanta makes a global impact on conservation through the Mabel Dorn Reeder Conservation Endowment Fund.

The Mabel Dorn Reeder Conservation Endowment Fund supports direct action for endangered species inside and outside the scope of our Centers of Excellence. We partner with other established conservation organizations on field projects for wild animals in their native habitats, where our help is needed the most. 

Our goals:

  • Make a meaningful impact on reversing species declines by leveraging the resources of our donors, staff and animal ambassadors represented in our collection
  • Build Zoo Atlanta’s leadership and relevance as a conservation leader, both locally and globally.
Gifts of all sizes are important and make a difference. Thank you for your support!
