Enhancing Animal Health

Seeking Improvements in Care

Disease-surveillance programs, nutrition studies and cutting-edge veterinary care reflect Lincoln Park Zoo’s commitment to enhancing animal health.

Enhancing Animal Health
By measuring testosterone, estrogen and progesterone over time—the same hormones that guide reproduction in humans—endocrinologists can gain insight into animal reproductive cycles.
By using non-invasive methods to monitor stress hormones, zoo scientists can improve animal conservation and care both at the zoo and around the globe.
There are an estimated 2,200 chimpanzees living in the United States today, more than double the number estimated in their home range country of Tanzania in East Africa. Project ChimpCARE is committed to providing sustainable care for all chimpanzees.
