Can you imagine using the latest advances in science and technology to help conserve endangered plants and animals around the world? At San Diego Zoo Global, we can and we do! More than 180 dedicated scientists with the San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation Research™ carry out research projects to help conserve plants, animals, and habitats in 35 countries around the world. Some projects are local and some are carried out in far-flung places, but all serve to promote biodiversity and sustainability on our planet. As human populations continue to increase, so does pressure on wildlife habitat and other natural resources, leaving many species threatened with extinction.

San Diego Zoo Global is committed to becoming a world leader in connecting people to wildlife and conservation. Thanks to our members, supporters, partners, and collaborators, we have reintroduced 33 species back into the wild, including the mountain yellow-legged frog, 5 species of reptiles, 17 species of birds, and 10 species of mammals. Together, we can and will achieve great things! Here are San Diego Zoo Global’s Ten Reasons for Hope.
