The Zoo Working in the Field to Save Wildlife

The North Carolina Zoo began its field conservation programs in the early 1990s and has been expanding its involvement in wildlife protection ever since. Currently, the North Carolina Zoo and NC Zoo Society spend approximately 2 percent of their budgets on the conservation of wild populations of plants and animals. Apart from salary costs, nearly all of the Zoo's conservation budget comes from funds donated by private individuals, foundations and government grants and through partnerships that the Zoo develops with other conservation organizations.
