In 2007, Zoo Boise announced a new conservation initiative aiming to significantly increase the zoo’s conservation efforts and the help the Treasure Valley community raise $1 million every 4 years for wildlife conservation worldwide. Zoo Boise was the first zoo in the country to create a conservation fee included in daily admissions and memberships, currently $.50 and $5.00 respectively. Upon entry, zoo visitors receive a special token that allows them to cast a vote for 1 of 3 conservation projects they would like to support.  Visitors can also choose to vote more than once by using additional coins.
