Charity

zoo-logoThe Toronto Zoo opened its gates to animal lovers in 1974. Since then, the global extinction rate has soared from one species per year to 1,095 per year. Some of the species housed at the Zoo no longer exist in the wild. As a result, Toronto Zoo now has a host of programs designed to save species from extinction.

The Toronto Zoo is dedicated to the financial support of the Zoo’s efforts to conserve species diversity through conservation, education and research. With events like the Oasis ZooRun 10k, 5k Walk and Cub Run, the Toronto Zoo funds several conservation programs. Click here to learn more.

As the need for conservation grows, so does the need for support.

Toronto Zoo Fun Fact

Cheetahs don’t need to drink water. They get the moisture they need from the bodies of their prey.
