Back To Conservation Main Page

Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo is committed to excellence in education, conservation and research. Our mission is to "Connect People with the Living Earth." The Zoo participates in nearly 90 Species Survival Plan (SSP) programs, cooperative breeding and conservation programs managed by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) to help ensure the survival of selected wildlife species. Under these programs, zoos work to maintain a healthy captive population, support field research and habitat protection, educate visitors, and reintroduce species to their native habitat when possible. The AZA Species Survival Plan® (SSP) program has long played a crucial role in sustaining threatened and endangered species. Guests will find about 90 of these animals at Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo.
