Overview:

The mission of the Greenville Zoo is to provide an enjoyable guest experience while we support and promote conservation efforts that enhance the quality of life for all living things. 

We have many values that support our mission, including promoting conservation and sustainability, actively seeking knowledge through science, and collaborating with others to maximize our impact and achieve greater goals.

In fulfillment of our mission, the Greenville Zoo has established a fund for local conservation projects (those occurring in North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia) as well as national and international projects by utilizing the “Quarters for Conservation” program. Conservation grants are awarded to programs that focus on the conservation of free-ranging wildlife, habitat conservation, conservation research, or conservation education programs.
