What if you could help save a species?
At Assiniboine Park Zoo, we provide the very highest quality of care to nearly 200 species. And many of the animals who call the Zoo home are endangered or at-risk, including red pandas, snow leopards, and polar bears.
The work we do right here in Winnipeg leads the way in global conservation efforts. In fact, the Zoo participates in 50 breeding programs through both the Species Survival Plan® (SSP) Program and the European Endangered Species Programme (EEP). Many of these breeding programs represent species that urgently need to be conserved and protected in the wild.
But caring for our animals is a costly endeavour. You can join your Zoo in providing our animal care, veterinary, and conservation research teams with the equipment and supplies they need to attend to the health and well-being of the special animals that live here.
One of the easiest conservation actions you can take is to support your Zoo! Doing so has a direct impact on the efforts of our staff to save animals like red pandas and snow leopards from extinction.
Your gift today will support the ongoing care that Assiniboine Park Zoo provides for these magnificent creatures every day, from routine exams to specialized diets and enrichment activities.
Did you know…
There may be as few as 2,500 red pandas in the world!
And eight of them live at Assiniboine Park Zoo! Through the SSP, we’ve played matchmaker to several red pandas, including Tango and Sachi, who welcomed two cubs to their family in June 2017, and a third cub this summer. The Zoo is a leader in red panda breeding; these animals breed here more than in other facilities and we have a higher rate of twin births. The global red panda population has dropped 50% in the past 20 years. Your support helps us continue the important work of conserving this unique species.
