TORONTO ZOO CELEBRATES EARTH DAY

STANDING BEHIND GREEN INITIATIVES



The Toronto Zoo is a not-for-profit organization committed to energy efficient operations and environmental protection. The Zoo has motivated volunteers, seasonal and full time staff that understand the importance of living sustainably in balance with nature. We understand and accept that climate change is a real threat to earth's biodiversity, perhaps most acutely to our own species. We accept that humans are largely responsible for global warming as a result of our use of non-renewable energy resources and emission of greenhouse gases. We encourage people to lessen their ecological footprint on the earth.
