May 18, 2018 marked Endangered Species Day—but every day is Endangered Species Day at San Diego Zoo Global! 

We have countless conservation partners around the world, but without a doubt our most important partners in the fight against extinction are donors just like you. Your donations to the San Diego Wildlife Conservancy fuel our efforts to save 130 species in 45 countries, including giant pandas, elephants, giraffes, rhinos, polar bears, and penguin—and trafficked wildlife like the #RescueCub at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.

Wildlife trafficking is a major threat to animals and plants worldwide, but with your support we are making a difference. Take a look at what you can do to help crush this illegal trade so that wildlife can thrive:

On behalf of all of us at San Diego Zoo Global, here in California and at our field stations around the globe, thank you for your continued support—donors just like you make these efforts possible!
