At the Toronto Zoo’s Adopt-A-Pond Wetland Conservation Program, we work to design and deliver impactful conservation-focused research, restoration, and outreach that highlights the importance of saving Canada’s sensitive wetland species and their habitats.

Since its inception in 1991, Adopt-A-Pond has engaged the community in education about wetland habitats and the species within. In the present day, Adopt-A-Pond has expanded to include community science initiatives (FrogWatch Ontario and Ontario Turtle Tally) and research projects focusing on conserving Ontario’s reptile and amphibian species. One such project includes the raising and release of the provincially Threatened Blanding’s turtle into its historic habitat in the Rouge National Urban Park!
