John Ball Zoo
Conservation is at the core of all we do here at John Ball Zoo as we work to save wildlife and wild places. Together, we are making a difference.
Through the generous support given we are able to contribute support initiatives right here in the Great Lakes Region and abroad. Examples of this work are regional field conservation work to protect Lake Sturgeon, Piping Plovers, Eastern Box turtles, wood turtles, and monarch butterflies.
Globally, John Ball Zoo partners with organizations such as Red Panda Network (RPN) who we provided funding towards their habitat restoration initiative to plant 10,000 trees in Nepal as well as their efforts to supply fuel-efficient cooking stoves to the people of Nepal. The zoo also works abroad with the Lion Recovery Fund’s goal to double the number of lions by 2050 and also funded ranger patrols and forest road closures that are helping to protect the remaining 500 Amur tigers who are in the wild from poachers.
Your support of JBZ and other conservation efforts is having a direct impact on the conservation of threatened and endangered species, and for that, we thank you.
