Species Conservation Worldwide

Every year, thousands of species disappear from the face of our planet. In the past 40 years, we have lost more than 60 percent of our animals in the wild. In response, scientific zoos around the world have turned their attention to the preservation of endangered animal species. The shared goal of nature and species conservation has given rise to partnerships with non-profit organisations all around the world, across political and cultural boundaries. Zoo Berlin currently supports the following projects on the ground:
