Read About the Project


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.
Zoo scientists protect the predators of the Serengeti, great apes in the Republic of Congo's Goualougo Triangle, and other wild wonders around the world and close to home.
By making models of how populations grow and change, zoo scientists ensure healthy futures in zoos and the wild.
From guiding reintroduction programs to returning animals to their historic homes, zoo scientists help species recover from their brush with extinction.
Disease-surveillance programs, nutrition studies and cutting-edge veterinary care reflect Lincoln Park Zoo’s commitment to enhancing animal health.
By monitoring behavior (and measuring hormones), zoo scientists help us better understand how animals engage the world around them.
