Meet Our Animals

Learn about the species you can see at our Zoo

When it comes to conservation, we try to walk the walk. We partner with international organizations to help protect animals and revitalize species in need all over the world. At the Zoo, we strive to be a leader in green practices using innovative technology and fresh ideas.

The International Conservation Center, often referred to as the ICC, sits on 724 acres of rolling hills in Somerset County, Pennsylvania. The ICC is North America’s premiere facility for African elephant conservation, education, training, breeding, and research. The perfect location to accommodate this research, the ICC is currently home to five elephants, including three females who were rescued from Botswana.

PPG Conservation & Sustainability Fund

The PPG Conservation and Sustainability Fund is a grant program of the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium, awarding grants between $1,000 and $3,000 to conservation-oriented projects. Over the past decade the PPG Conservation and Sustainability Fund has supported over 204 projects in 56 countries.
