Through wide-ranging programs founded on a diverse collection of more than 1,600 animals representing over 500 species and over 3,000 botanical specimens, the CZBG has changed a passive Zoo visit into dynamic interaction and engaging experience. As the leading non-formal science educator in southern Ohio, the Zoo reaches over 330,000 children and educators each year through educational outreach.
CZBG's Center for Conservation and Research of Endangered Wildlife (CREW) facility is dedicated to saving endangered plants and animals such as polar bears, rhinos and cheetahs from extinction. As the Greenest Zoo in America, CZBG is committed to environmental sustainability through green building, energy efficiency, a zero-landfill focus and much more. And finally, through strategic partnerships, CZBG is committed to improving the local community socially, culturally, educationally and environmentally.
