Conservation begins at home. Seneca Park Zoo has many programs to inspire the community to take action for wildlife and wild places. From cleanup events to workforce development—we’re bringing conservation efforts right into our own backyard.

Conservation at The Zoo

The conservation power of Seneca Park Zoo comes from the animals we care for and the people they inspire. As a Zoo guest, you begin contributing to conservation science, animal welfare, & innovative programming when you walk through the front gate.
