Conducting Scientific Research at Lincoln Park Zoo


Lincoln Park Zoo initiates, facilitates and encourages scientific research that will increase basic zoological knowledge, lead to advances in health, husbandry and management in captivity, and aid conservation of threatened species and habitats in the United States and abroad. Increasing concern for endangered species gives highest priority to work that increases understanding of the behavior, nutrition, environmental physiology and small population biology of endangered species in the collection.
