As a member of Roger Williams Park Zoo, your
adventure begins the minute you walk through the
gates. From animal encounters to fun in Hasbro’s
Our Big Backyard, something is always happening
at the Zoo. Your support also helps continue the
vital work we accomplish daily including species
preservation, conservation and education as well as
critical work in our community and beyond.

Saving Animals From Extinction

One of our most powerful tools to help threatened and endangered species is Saving Animals From Extinction (SAFE), an Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) program. SAFE is featured at all 229 AZA-accredited institutions, including RWP Zoo, with the goal of engaging and educating visitors about our conservation initiatives and how they impact local, regional and global environments.

Today, visitors to the Zoo can learn about over 100 different species, with many found on the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s (IUCN) Red List, ranging from “Critically Endangered” to “Near Threatened.”

Owl Charm supports Zoo work

Alex and Ani will donate 20% from each Ode to the Owl Charm sold to provide science and environmental education programs to over 30,000 children from pre-school through high school.
