Conservation at the Tulsa Zoo

The Tulsa Zoo Conservation Program (TZCP) is a group of Zoo staff, volunteers, and Zoo Friends members dedicated to advancing the ideals of reuse and recycling, resource and wildlife conservation, and conservation education. The Tulsa Zoo is one of the leading conservation organizations in Oklahoma, and the TZCP manages all aspects of conservation at the zoo.  In fact, the Tulsa Zoo has supported over 200 projects in dozens of countries across the globe, as well as right here in Oklahoma.

The Tulsa Zoo realizes that the survival of animal and plant species is often dependant on the knowledge and stewardship of the local people.  Capacity building in project locations is key to success.   Therefore, the projects we support must benefit the indigenous peoples and cultures that share space and resources with these species. 

The next time you’re at the zoo, take a look around and learn a little more about our conservation efforts. We look forward to seeing you soon!
