The Saint Louis Zoo, located in St. Louis, Missouri, is a world leader in saving endangered species and their habitats. Many of the animals at the Zoo are threatened in the wild by shrinking habitats, disease and poaching. The need for conservation is greater than ever, with one vertebrate species disappearing from the Earth every day. Ultimately, we need to save the ecosystems on which animals and humans depend. The Saint Louis Zoo WildCare Institute, with the support of its Conservation Fellows, takes a holistic approach to troubled ecosystems by addressing three key ingredients in conservation success: wildlife management and recovery, conservation science, and support of the human populations that coexist with wildlife.
The WildCare Institute is dedicated to creating a sustainable future for wildlife and for people around the world.

Many thanks to the staff of the Saint Louis Zoo for all of their hard work.
