Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS)


Mission Statement

WCS saves wildlife and wild places worldwide through science, conservation action, education, and inspiring people to value nature.


Founded in 1895 as the New York Zoological Society, the Wildlife Conservation Society was one of the first conservation organizations in the U.S. The Society began with a clear mandate: Advance wildlife conservation, promote the study of zoology, and create a first-class zoo. In fact we have five: the Bronx Zoo, Central Park Zoo, Queens Zoo, Prospect Park Zoo, and New York Aquarium.
WCS envisions a world where wildlife thrives in healthy lands and seas, valued by societies that embrace and benefit from the diversity and integrity of life on earth.
WCS's goal it to conserve the World's largest places in 16 priority regions, home to more than 50% of the World's biodiversity.
