The NC Zoo Society is an independent association of members committed to fostering enduring personal connections between people and nature. We support the North Carolina Zoo and its projects that educate and inspire people about our natural environment. The Society, in partnership with the Zoo, conserves wildlife and wild places throughout the world, promotes scientific research and advocacy, encourages relationships with nature through outdoor recreation, and generates respect for animals and their welfare.
