The mission of the Indianapolis Zoo is to empower people and communities, both locally and globally, to advance animal conservation.

 

The Indianapolis Zoo has emerged as a world-class facility hosting more than a million visitors each year. The 64-acre campus is home to nearly 1,200 animals and 34,000 plants, including many threatened and endangered species. The Zoo has also become a global leader in animal conservation and research. The Indianapolis Zoo also supports the efforts of animal conservation organizations around the globe with a grant program and through the Indianapolis Prize, the world’s leading award for animal conservation that recognizes and rewards conservationists who have achieved major victories in advancing the sustainability of an animal species or group of species.

 

The Indianapolis Zoological Society is a private 501(c)3 organization governed by a board of trustees and is one of the largest privately funded zoos in the United States. Located in White River State Park since 1988, the Zoo is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums and was the first to be triple accredited as a zoo, an aquarium and a botanic garden by the American Alliance of Museums. The Indianapolis Zoo is also a proud community member of the Indy Chamber, Downtown Indy and Visit Indy.

 

Made possible by the Allen Whitehill Clowes Charitable Foundation, Inc. and Friends of the Library through gifts to The Indianapolis Public Library Foundation.
