The Wildlife Conservation Society traces its origin to April 26th 1895 when New York State chartered the New York Zoological Society. The charter empowered the Society to create a zoo in order to encourage the knowledge of zoology, promote research in zoology and related subjects, and furnish education and recreation to the general public.

Since 1895, WCS (previously known as the New York Zoological Society) has worked from their Bronx Zoo headquarters to save wildlife and wild lands throughout the world. They uniquely combine the resources of wildlife parks in New York with field projects around the globe to inspire care for nature, provide leadership in environmental education, and help sustain the planet's biological diversity. Today WCS is at work in 53 nations across Africa, Asia, Latin America and North America, protecting wild landscapes that are home to a vast variety of species from butterflies to tigers. Their pioneering environmental education programs reach millions locally, nationally and internationally.
