Orangutan at Perth Zoo

Perth Zoo gets hands-on in wildlife conservation, at home and beyond our borders. This is what makes us one of the world’s best small zoos. One simple vision inspires and directs our work – a world where diversity of species and habitats is secure.

The role and purpose of zoos have changed enormously in recent decades. Perth Zoo plays a part in the much bigger picture of the conservation of our natural world. We do this in collaboration with scientific agencies, governments and other conservation partners. We:

  • contribute directly to the preservation of species and habitat diversity
  • provide the opportunity for visitors to encounter the natural world and become involved in conservation
  • connect people with nature and inspire a passion for conservation
  • provide links and practical ways for individuals to become involved in conservation at the Zoo and beyond our borders
  • role-model environmental sustainability
