The Conservation & Science department’s mission is to provide ex situ support for in situ conservation. We accomplish our goals through participation and leadership in conservation efforts at the Phoenix Zoo, throughout our region and worldwide.

The Phoenix Zoo encourages global activism by offering conservation grants to selected individuals who apply through the Conservation & Science Grant program. The Zoo’s grants can go towards supporting a component of a larger project, seed money to begin a novel project, or towards the expansion of an existing conservation program.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
