Our Actions Matter

Africa is home to many endangered species, including cheetahs, white rhinos, chimpanzees and more. Habitat destruction, illegal poaching and climate change are some of the greatest threats to wildlife. By making small choices, you can help African animals in the wild.

  • Recycle your old electronics. This reduces the need for coltan and other minerals, which are mined from critical habitat areas. Recycling also prevents hazardous chemicals leaching into the ground.
  • Be a conscious consumer. What we buy affects animals and their habitats. Look for palm oil, coffee and other foods that come from sustainable sources. Do not purchase any product containing animal parts.
  • Become a Zoo Parent to support species care, animal enrichment and conservation programs.
