The Indianapolis Zoo is located on a 64 acre campus in the heart of Indy's vibrant downtown area. The mission of the Indianapolis Zoo is to empower people and communities, both locally and globally, to advance animal conservation. In the words of our President and CEO Mike Crowther, “We're not a zoo doing conservation; we're a global conservation organization that is a zoo".
The Indianapolis Zoo is also committed to sustainability—the ability of humans to provide responsible stewardship of the Earth's limited and precious resources. The entire Zoo staff is involved with efforts to lead the way by making the Zoo itself as green as possible
