The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden is committed to ensuring that endangered species have a future in the wild. Project Saving Species provides a direct way for our guests and supporters to join the Zoo in making a difference. Funds raised go directly to field conservation projects across the globe, ranging from western lowland gorilla studies in the Congo to promoting the coexistence of people and lions in Kenya. Learn more about the field projects here.
