John Ball Zoo

Wildlife Conservation Fund

For thirty years the John Ball Zoo’s Wildlife Conservation Fund has helped fund conservation projects both regionally and across the globe. These projects have helped conserve wildlife and wild places in more than 30 countries.

Many projects funded by the Wildlife Conservation Fund have been education-based with an eye to helping communities learn about the wildlife around them. In addition, the fund has lent support to help conserve some of the lesser known taxa such as endangered reptiles and amphibians.

When John Boyles had the insight in 1985 to start the Conservation Fund here at John Ball Zoo, he was truly visionary. Over the years his vision has been turned into a wonderful reality of support for conservation throughout the world. Today, the fund continues to support projects around the globe that align with the conservation strategy of the Zoo.
