The Wildlife Conservation Society saves wildlife and wild places in 60 countries and oceans worldwide.

The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) saves wildlife and wild places across 60 countries and oceans worldwide through science, conservation action, education, and inspiring people to value nature.

As part of its global mission to Discover-Protect-Inspire, WCS operates the New York Zoos & Aquarium. For 120 years, WCS has connected 400 million people to wildlife at the Bronx Zoo, New York Aquarium, Central Park Zoo, Prospect Park Zoo, and Queens Zoo.

Canon U.S.A. has partnered with WCS and the Bronx Zoo, the world's largest urban zoological park. Canon has sponsored the transformation and reopening of the Children's Zoo at the Bronx Zoo - an outdoor exhibit where families learn about nature and the environment through live animal encounters and interactive play.

A visit to the Children's Zoo is a cherished memory for millions of New Yorkers. Nearly 75 years after its historic opening, WCS has renovated and enhanced the exhibit, while still maintaining the nostalgia that people recall from childhood.
