In The Field Global

Conservation is a primary concern at Oakland Zoo.

We are committed to improved global health and the preservation of biodiversity. Oakland Zoo takes Action for Wildlife with a variety of conservation projects spanning the globe, supporting them through raising awareness, fundraising and the donation of materials and expertise.

Roots & Shoots

An international organization founded by Dr. Jane Goodall to promote conservation leadership and action among young people, this powerful, youth-driven network fosters a fun, flexible and supportive environment where kids and adults alike come together to share ideas and inspiration, implement successful community service projects and participate in special events and global campaigns.

Lubee Bat Conservancy

Lubee Bat Conservancy is an international non-profit organization working with others to save fruit and nectar bats and their habitats through conservation, research and education.


The Oakland Zoo is an active partner of Save , formerly known as the Center for Ecosystem Survival. The primary goal is to increase individual participation and awareness of worldwide conservation by providing opportunities for direct action. With the support of school children, zoos, aquariums, botanical gardens, and other conservation-minded individuals and organizations, Save has been successful in raising over $2 million to protect rainforests and coral reefs in Costa Rica, Belize, Guatemala, Peru, Panama, Bolivia, Brazil, and Micronesia to name just a few.

Shade Grown Fair Trade Coffee

The Shade Grown label on our Thanksgiving brand coffee means it was grown on a plantation that is also a forest home for migratory birds. Of the true rainforest that remains in Mexico and Central America, most is located in or near coffee plantations. The coffee plant, a shade-loving shrub, thrives under a canopy of diverse tree species, as the rainforest provides a natural mulch for coffee plants and prevents soil erosion.
