Protecting Wild Ecosystems

From field research in the forests of Africa to zoo studies aimed at enhancing our understanding of ape behavior, Lincoln Park Zoo leads the way in great ape conservation.

Protecting Wild Ecosystems
In a remote region of the Republic of Congo, researchers are conducting groundbreaking research into how gorillas and chimpanzees live alongside one another in one of the most pristine landscapes on earth.
At a time when bat populations across the country are declining, the zoo’s Urban Wildlife Institute is using non-invasive techniques to study bat species in the greater Chicago area.
Monitoring stations from city to suburbs will help scientists chronicle the wildlife of the Chicago region.
Habitat loss has caused this shy species to be endangered through much of its range, including Illinois. Lincoln Park Zoo works with partners across the country to guide its recovery.
The Serengeti Health Initiative aims to preserve the African region's rich wildlife while benefiting local people.
