Sponsor an animal

The natural rate of extinction on Earth is one or two species per century. Scientists estimate we are currently losing up to 100 species per day, and most predict that half of the animal species alive today will become extinct in the next 100 years.

When you sponsor an animal, you help us continue our conservation work here at the Zoo and around the world. And you help us continue sharing these animals’ magnificence with Zoo visitors.
