Woodland Park Zoo Strategic Plan: 2015-2018
Woodland Park Zoo is evolving to meet current and future needs, shaping and epitomizing the purpose of conservation zoos in the 21st century. With a significant rise anticipated for the Puget Sound region’s population, we must dramatically increase our reach and impact to serve a growing community. But there is an even greater reason we must do so. In a world of dwindling habitats and climate adaptation for all animals, including humans, we must engage millions of people in a transformational challenge: learning to share the planet’s finite resources sustainably with other species.
