|CREATING ADVENTURE: CZBG serves over a million visitors annually through a variety of wide-ranging programs founded on one of the most superb and diverse collections of plants and animals in the United States – more than 2,000 animals representing over 400 species, 39% of which are endangered or protected, and more than 4,000 botanical species.
CONVEYING KNOWLEDGE: CZBG is the leading non-formal science educator in southern Ohio, reaching over 350,000 children and educators each year through on-site and virtual science programs; maintaining the Zoo Academy, a full-time public high school on Zoo grounds for underserved students; collaborating with local universities and every school district in the tri-state; and annually providing 12,000 students and their teachers with free field trips through our Living Classroom Education Access Fund (LCEAF).
CONSERVING NATURE: CZBG is an international leader in conservation & breeding through our Center for Conservation & Research of Endangered Wildlife (CREW). CREW also does world-class research on “exceptional” plants – those in danger of extinction – focusing on plants native to the U.S. The Zoo’s commitment to environmental sustainability has made green building, energy efficiency, and stormwater management core priorities.
SERVING COMMUNITY: The Zoo partners with many organizations on educational and green initiatives that improve quality of life in our community, including the new Rockdale Academy Urban Learning Garden – a collaboration with Cincinnati Public Schools. Zoo Access for All programs also serve 10,000 individuals annually, including children and youth with developmental disabilities and their families, low-income families, and individuals for whom English is a second language.
