The Bronx Zoo Protects a Diversity of Wildlife

The foundation of the Zoo began to originate in 1895 when the New York Zoological Society (NYZS) was established with the purpose of creating a zoological park that could educate the public, propitiate the study of zoology and protect the wildlife. In 1993, the New York Zoological Society (NYZS) was renamed Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS).
