Living Green

Polar Bear swimming profile
Living Green is the Zoo's sustainable philosophy of taking care of animals, their habitats, and the Earth, not only to preserve wild places and wildlife, but also to preserve human life and the places where humans live.

Through the Zoo's Green Conservation Initiatives, Green Partnerships, and our encouragement of Green Practices for our Visitors, the Zoo knows that little changes in our behavior can make a big impact on the lives of animals.

After all, everything on our planet is connected, perhaps in more ways than we suspect, so it makes sense that we cannot protect animals without protecting the places they live. More and more we are learning just how interconnected we are on our planet, and how saving the habitats of wild animals is one and the same with saving ourselves.
