Thanks to you, lots of excitement is happening at the Zoo. New exhibits are opening, conservation work is expanding, and our staff is more engaged than ever with every guest. Youthful people of all ages are soaking up adventures and making wildlife connections with us every day. Today our mission is as clear as it is urgent. World leaders, along with the vast majority of the most respected scientists, have sounded an alarm. If we choose not to reduce, innovate, or modify our behaviors in some way, our future may not be as manageable as our past. At the Zoo, we know how to inspire action. Through intimate conversations, we share our animal friends’ most memorable and moving stories. Within these narratives, we are able to deliver our message – that wildlife and the natural world deserve our attention and respect. The planet and its species may not be as durable as we think. Our footprint is getting heavy. Conservation action begins with us. Read more by clicking the article title above

A crowd of 130 attendees enjoyed a Conservation Leadership Lecture featuring “Florida Panther Habitat Conservation and Connectivity” given by Dr. Richard A. Hilsenbeck at the Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society on June 12, 2014. Guests enjoyed cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, Zoo animal encounters and the sounds of a string quartet from the Palm Beach Public Schools Orchestral Strings. Dr. Hilsenbeck, who spent more than 23 years as a conservation biologist with The Nature Conservancy, said Florida panthers now live in less than 5% of their historic range, with mortality locations typically along roadways. “The recovery strategy for the Florida Panther is to maintain, restore and expand the panther population and its habitat in South Florida,” said Hilsenbeck.
