Here at the Potter Park Zoo we are incredibly passionate about our conservation efforts and spreading the word on the importance of saving endangered species around the globe. We created an interactive display called “Quarters for Conservation” in our Zoo.

At the display guests can learn about three different species found at our zoo and help to save that species by donating a quarter to your favorite one. All donations go directly to a conservation organization working to save that species in the wild, and Potter Park Zoo matches the donation for the species with the most quarters donated.

Conservation Bookmarks:

Stop by the admissions booth or AniMall Gift Shop and purchase a conservation bookmark for $1. All proceeds from bookmark sales go directly to conservation! We have a new set of bookmarks for sale each year, making them a grat collectible item.

The Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch® program helps consumers and businesses choose seafood that’s fished or farmed in ways that support a healthy ocean, now and for future generations. Their recommendations indicate which seafood items are Best Choices or Good Alternatives, and which ones you should Avoid.
