The mission of the Chicago Zoological Society is to inspire conservation leadership by connecting people with wildlife and nature.
Today, there is an increasing need for conservation leaders to guide, teach, and motivate people to protect the world’s threatened wildlife and ecosystems. In addition to conservationists, the Society inspires and engages children, students, teachers, and other among the general public to make a positive impact on the natural world around them. From protecting regional wilderness to creating environmental stewardship through zoo interactions and educational opportunities, from guiding future scientists to pioneering global conservation efforts, the Society sits at the apex of care for animals and their habitats.
Free Days: Tuesdays and Thursdays from October 1 through December 31 are also FREE days for zoo general admission. (Note: While admission is free on these days, normal internal attraction fees still apply--this includes the Dolphin Presentations.)
