Dakota Zoo Conservation Fund
A portion of your money spent visiting our zoo is donated directly to conservation! Fifty cents of each admission has been earmarked by our board of directors to go towards the Dakota Zoo Conservation Fund (DZCF). This fund will be be used for wildlife conservation purposes on a local, national, and global basis and is part of a concerted effort to raise the profile of your zoo’s commitment to conservation.
Zoo members will be able to support conservation efforts as well, with $5.00 from each membership sold going to the DZCF.
Conservation Fund monies will be distributed to conservation organizations, programs and projects selected by the zoo’s conservation and scientific research committee. Programs that will benefit from these funds will include those involved in wildlife conservation and management, habitat restoration, conservation education and scientific research in zoology, biology, habitat, and endangered species conservation.
