Based in New York City, the Wildlife Conservation Society was founded in 1895 as the New York Zoological Society. Today, the society encompasses the Bronx Zoo, Prospect Park Zoo, Queens Zoo, Central Park Zoo and the New York Aquarium.

The society saves wildlife and wild places worldwide through science, conservation action, education, and inspiring people to value nature. Its goal is to conserve the world's largest wild places in 15 priority regions, which are home to more than 50 percent of the world’s biodiversity.

With the help of its staff—who hold a unique mixture of field, zoo, and aquarium expertise—the Wildlife Conservation Society has been protecting wildlife and wild places for more than a century. The society envisions a world where wildlife thrives in healthy lands and seas, valued by societies that embrace and benefit from the diversity and integrity of life on earth.
