The Philadelphia Zoo celebrated its 150th Anniversary in 2009. We have spent more than 150 years building strong programs in education and wildlife conservation aimed at accomplishing our mission which is, "By connecting people with wildlife, the Philadelphia Zoo creates joyful discovery and inspires action for animals and habitats."
In addition, one of the Zoo's strategic initiatives is to become a leader among zoos and community organizations in achieving sustainable ("green") operating practices and engage our guests in "greening" their lives. With 1.2 million visitors annually, we're poised to educate our community, model sustainable practices and provide tools for taking action to live greener.
Water Reduction - Reduce overall water usage by 70% by the end of 2018 - 80% Complete.
Through April of 2012, the Zoo's annual water usage has decreased to a little over 600,000 gallons/day, thus reducing our water usage by 67% over our 2008 baseline data. We continue to see reductions in use due to the diligence of staff to conserve water in their day to day operations, the installation of water saving devices on sinks and showers, waterless urinals in some men's restrooms and through ongoing major construction projects that focus on repairing or abandoning old underground water lines that have been the source of significant water loss over the years.
