Key Impacts




Forest Trailhead Exhibit

We’re building our interactive, state-of-the-art Forest Trailhead exhibit, welcoming guests into an entirely new zoo experience teeming with diverse plants and animals. You’ll embark on an exciting journey that captivates your senses, revealing the interconnectedness of all life and how our daily choices can help make the world more sustainable for all life.




Conservation Partnerships

We’re advancing the work of our international field conservation programs and partners, fostering collaboration across communities to create a more sustainable world. And we’re sharing practices across cultures to honor local expertise and amplify our impact, building on successful initiatives including the Tree Kangaroo Conservation Program and the Saving Species Impact Fund.






ACE for Wildlife Network

We’re leading a network of 20 zoos and aquariums to expand the power of empathy to drive conservation actions, maximizing our impact as we work to preserve our beloved Pacific Northwest habitats, through the Advancing Conservation Through Empathy (ACE) for Wildlife Network.



Social Impact Measurement

We’re elevating our measurement and metrics so we can better evaluate our mission impact, leading to more strategic, data-driven decision-making that increases the effectiveness of our conservation efforts.



Amplifying Community Voices

We’re engaging the voices of our community members to guide the development of our new Forest Trailhead exhibit and related programs, ensuring our zoo is a place where all of our neighbors feel seen, heard, and valued.



Climate Action

We’re driving forward our climate action strategy, utilizing our unique role to involve more of our neighbors in the growing conservation movement.
