Conservation: What You Can Do

Conservation: What You Can Do

Sometimes "living green" and doing your part to save the environment can seem like vague and overwhelming goals.  But each and every one of us can make a big impact on our environment by getting involved and by making small changes in our daily lives.

Students assist Roger Williams Park Zoo staff with a conservation project.

Take One Small Step for Wildlife

We're inviting YOU to join our conservation action community!  Each year, we focus on one simple, concrete and measurable step that we can all take to have a positive effect on the environment - this is our "conservation action.”  Take the pledge now and we’ll send you updates through our monthly enewsletter, Peek-A-Zoo.   What’s more, we each will have formed one simple habit that will continue to have a positive impact on our earth for the rest of our lives!  Then, the next year, we’ll start again with a new small step for wildlife.
