Join the Detroit Zoological Society for our second annual Wildlife Conservation Gala! Themed “Standing up to Extinction” and presented by Ford Motor Company, the event will highlight the DZS’s global wildlife conservation efforts.
In the last few years alone, the DZS has led and/or supported field conservation programs on six continents. These programs include assessing the status of snow leopards and red pandas in China and Nepal, conducting population studies of penguins in Antarctica and the Falkland Islands, rescuing and rehabilitating gorillas in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and rearing and releasing nearly extinct toads in the U.S. and abroad, among others. With so many species threatened or endangered around the world, the DZS is standing up to extinction.
