Through breeding, research, education, global partnerships and more, we are in the fight to save our planet. Protecting nature equals protecting people. And your gift to the More Home to Roam campaign would mean the world.

 

 

 

THE FIGHT THAT’S IN FIONA IS IN EVERY ONE OF US.

Giving would mean the world to keepers who never give up.

Cincinnati Zoo staff fought tirelessly through setback after setback to not only keep Fiona alive, but to help her thrive. Her story is just the most well-known example of our animal care staff’s passion for and dedication to every animal that lumbers, swims, swings, slithers, flies, prowls, hops, gallops or waddles within our 80 acres.

CONSERVATION IN OUR OWN BACKYARD

Giving would mean the world for pollinators.

Pollinators - from butterflies and bees to hummingbirds and moths – are disappearing worldwide. The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden is committed to helping save these crucial creatures and to making it easier for people to create pollinator-friendly ecosystems in their own yards.

WHEN WE EVOLVE, THEY THRIVE.

Giving would mean the world to the animals we work so hard to save.

As the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden’s expertise in animal care, conservation, education, and horticulture continues to grow, our habitats need to grow with it. Habitat changes will be the most expansive in the Zoo’s history.

WE’RE GROUND ZERO FOR NET ZERO.

Giving would mean the world for sustainability.

Known as America’s Greenest Zoo, we are committed to becoming the world’s first zoo to achieve Net Zero energy, waste and water status. In fact, no private or public entity of any kind has attempted a sustainability initiative on the scale we’re driving towards. A key component of the More Home to Roam campaign, the Zoo’s Net Zero plan includes more solar power on all our properties, more rainwater collection, more composting and less overall waste.

LOCAL ZOO. GLOBAL IMPACT.

Giving would mean the world for wildlife research.

The Cincinnati Zoo invests in passionate individuals and organizations who are committed to saving wildlife globally. World-renowned scientists at the Zoo’s Lindner Center for Conservation and Research of Endangered Wildlife (CREW) have led the way on global efforts to save the Sumatran rhino, imperiled small cats, polar bears, native plants, and others.

THE CARE AND FEEDING OF YOUNG MINDS.

Giving would mean the world to students.

Widely recognized as the leading non-formal science educator in southern Ohio, the Zoo reaches more than 350,000 students and educators each year.

MAKING ADVENTURE EVEN MORE ACCESSIBLE.

Giving would mean the world for families who experience the Zoo differently.

The goal of the Cincinnati Zoo is to be a place where both animals and people can thrive, no matter who they are, no matter what challenges – physical, economic, or social – they face. Our More Home to Roam capital campaign emphasizes this vision, and funds raised for it will be used to elevate the Zoo experience for everyone.

TRANSFORMING COMMUNITIES NEAR AND FAR.

Giving would mean the world for our neighbors everywhere.

We’re striving to be more than just the neighbors with the loud animals. Supporting and partnering with diverse and economically-challenged communities is a responsibility the Zoo takes seriously. MoreHome to Roam funds will help us increase our efforts to connect communities with conservation and its many benefits.

 

GIVING WOULD MEAN THE WORLD FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS

At the heart of every great city is a great zoo. What’s just as true is that at the heart of every great zoo are compassionate, committed citizens who know what zoos mean to the world. Investment in the Zoo is an investment in our planet. As a globally recognized, fierce defender of all manner of wildlife and the environment, the Cincinnati Zoo is not only a place to see the wonder, power, and beauty of nature, it’s a place the world trusts to help save it.
