Wildlife Conservation

Zoo Boise turns the act of visiting a zoo into a conservation action.  Part of every admission and proceeds from our most popular attractions go to the Zoo Boise Conservation Fund which supports the protection of wild animals in Idaho and around the world.  Helping endangered species is easy and fun at Zoo Boise.

While we all care about animals and want to protect them in the wild, knowing how to help can be a challenge.  So Zoo Boise has redefined itself as a vehicle to help our visitors save endangered species.  Now, when families in the Treasure Valley visit the zoo, they just don’t see animals, they help save animals as well.

Want to know more about conservation at Zoo Boise? Please visit our Conservation page.
