The Chicago Zoological Society (the Society), started in 1921, is most well-known for its primary program, the Brookfield Zoo. The Brookfield Zoo is located on 216 acres west of Chicago, and houses more than 4,300 animals, including birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fish and invertebrates. The Brookfield Zoo is recognized as one of the top zoos in the nation and Chicago’s most popular outdoor cultural attraction: 2.1 million individuals visit its exhibits annually. In addition to running the Brookfield Zoo, the Society runs two Centers: the Center for Animal Care and Welfare and the Center for Conservation Leadership. In each of these three primary areas of work, the Society’s programs focus on education and community outreach, research, and conservation. It holds conservation partnerships with a number of local, national, and international organizations, including the Dallas Zoo and Bioparque Temaiken in Argentina. This award is recommended as renewed support for the general operations of Chicago Zoological Society.
