Extinction is forever - learn how you can help save animals from extinction

AZA SAFE along with AZA accredited zoos and aquariums (like the Pueblo Zoo!) are working together to save the most vulnerable wildlife species from extinction and help protect them for future generations.


Since 2016, the Pueblo Zoo has provided funding through the SAFE program to support research on artificial nest boxes for African penguins. In 2018, those boxes went into action. The program has shown incredible success in helping these rare birds in their natural habitat. Our continued annual goal for this program is $2,000.
