Animal Conservation

Visitors to The Toledo Zoo come away with lasting memories of thrilling encounters with exotic wildlife, but the Zoo is so much more than a menagerie. Thousands of children and teachers take advantage of the Zoo's on-grounds and outreach educational programs each year. Behind the scenes and in the field, the Toledo Zoo staff is instrumental in the conservation of many of the world's critically endangered animal species. The Zoo's animal collection consists of over 4,700 mammals, fish, reptiles, amphibians, birds, and invertebrates, representing 700 exotic species from all over the world. Numerous species in the Zoo's collection are threatened or endangered in the wild. These species are protected through the American Zoo and Aquarium Associatio's (AZA) Species Survival Plan (SSP) program. SSPs manage the breeding of threatened or endangered species in order to maintain healthy and self-sustaining populations. Sloth bears, snow leopards, Aruba Island rattlesnakes, Wyoming toads, Lake Victoria cichlids, and Cinereous vultures are just a small sampling of the SSP species managed at The Toledo Zoo. State-of-the-art Exhibits Gone are the days of cage bars and concrete. The Toledo Zoo continually strives to provide naturalistic, state-of-the-art exhibits for its animal collection. With many of the exhibits, such as the Arctic Encounter®, the Hippoquarium®, the award-winning Aviary, and the Aquarium's walk-through rainforest exhibit, visitors get the sense that they are completely immersed in the animals? natural habitats. This trend toward more natural displays culminated in the 12-acre Africa! exhibit, which opened in 2004. Education Programs To know wildlife is to love wildlife--and, hence, to preserve it. Along with providing face-to-face encounters with fascinating, exotic animals, the Zoo strives to promote concern for all wildlife and conservation of the Earth's natural resources through fun and informative on-grounds and outreach educational programs. Free to all Lucas County schools and organizations, nearly 75,000 students and teachers take part in these programs each year. The Zoo is also "wired for the future" with a new, interactive Distance Learning program, which carries the Zoo's message of wildlife and environmental awareness to classrooms all across the country via cutting-edge videoconferencing technology. Our teacher workshops afford science educators the opportunity to learn new teaching techniques and activities, expand their wildlife awareness, and challenge themselves professionally while interacting with their peers. The rose garden, delightfully fragrant and bursting with color, beckons visitors to the Conservatory with its abundance of tropical foliage. Historic Architecture The Toledo Zoo also features the largest collection of Depression-era public works buildings in one location, including the Reptile House, Amphitheatre, Aviary, Museum of Science, and Aquarium.
