John Ball Zoo

Grant Recipients

For a zoo our size it is unusual to have a wildlife conservation fund...but we do! We’ve had one since 1985 thanks to John Boyles and Dick Faber. Each year we look for projects where our small grants go a long way and make a big difference. We’d like to congratulate all the dedicated people who applied this year for the great work they do! Thank you to our Animals! Animals! sponsors who help fund our conservation grants, and also make John Ball Zoo’s mission possible; inspiring people to be active participants in the conservation of wildlife and our natural environment.
