Research is an integral part of our mission at Zoo Atlanta. Not only does research help us better understand and care for the animals in our collection, but it also provides us with valuable insights that enable us to protect their counterparts in the wild. Experts at Zoo Atlanta participate in ongoing research programs here in Georgia and around the world. Learn more here about just a few!
