Mission Statement

The mission of the Forest Park Zoological Society is to promote public awareness and appreciation for indigenous and exotic animals, and to provide educational programming for all ages that encourages understanding and respect for the natural environment. The animal collections and gardens enhance our perception of the natural world, and emphasize the importance of biodiversity. The Society is committed to inspiring conservation of our natural resources and protection for threatened and endangered species. The Forest Park Zoological Society will continue to maintain the highest standard of animal care, facility maintenance, and promote comprehensive educational programming opportunities for its members and regional community.
