We Stand for Wildlife®
Coffee with Turtles
Over a four-day period, we brought you live and recorded video of one of the most magnificent annual turtle nesting events in the world.
What does WCS's Lauren Oakes think about when it comes to adaptive strategies to confront the climate crisis? We spoke to her for this week's podcast, which coincides with Climate Week NYC.
There are simple steps you can take to save the planet. Help slow climate change, sign up for Wild For All and celebrate wild places, and more.
We work to save wildlife and wild places in nearly 60 countries and across the world's oceans.
WCS's world-class scientific staff—based at our zoos, aquarium, and with conservation programs around the world—produces hundreds of research publications each year.
Through our five zoological parks in New York, we're able to connect people to animals and nature and inspire them to care about conservation.
WCS has been advancing science education and increasing ecological literacy since 1929. Today, more than 150,000 students participate in classes, tours, and outreach programs each year at our four zoos and our aquarium.
We have one of the oldest zoological veterinary programs ever established, which continues to provide specialized care. In 1989, we developed our Field Veterinary Program, the first and largest of its kind.
Across the planet we collaborate with Indigenous Peoples and local communities to achieve a shared vision for a more secure and resilient future.
“I’ve worked in every ocean basin,” says WCS's Howard Rosenbaum. “People associate these wildlife spectacles with other areas of our planet. Yet they’re right here in our backyard.”
With the construction of a safer roadway nearby, traffic on Death Road has dropped to a trickle. And now, says a team of WCS scientists, it's a surprising haven for animals.
