Zoo-Based Wildlife Conservation with Utah’s Hogle Zoo
A key priority of Utah’s Hogle Zoo (UHZ) is fostering a meaningful impact on the conservation of Utah wildlife. We achieve this through education, outreach and hands on work throughout the state. The Conservation Department has several projects currently underway:
• A long term commitment to help restore the Jordan River/through community based activities including tree planting/trail clean ups/invasive species removal and pollinator garden creation.
• Wildlife monitoring through the use of trail cameras along the Jordan Rover and the surrounding watershed.
• Amphibian conservation through statewide surveys/breed and release programming/telemetry research and habitat restoration. Students will assist in the above research gaining experience in fieldwork/public outreach and volunteer management.
