About Us

The Frankfurt Zoological Society stands for a world in which biodiversity values are recognised and maintained, in order to ensure a high quality of life for current and future generations. Within this context, our mission is to protect the natural diversity of species in important ecosystems across the globe – in partnership with and for people. FZS maintains long-term conservation programmes in Africa, Latin America, Asia and Europe. All programmes focus on:

  • Capacity building for effective ecosystem management
  • Strengthening protected area operations in key ecosystems
  • Development of policies, plans and awareness to support effective ecosystem management
  • Development of monitoring and research to increase understanding of ecosystem processes
  • Involvement of local communities in the management and sustainable use of natural resources
  • Development of sustainable financing of ecosystem management
