Green Practices


At the heart of the Zoo’s movement towards sustainability is the many staff-engagement programs led by the Zoo’s Green Team. Committed to advancing sustainability in our operations, this team of multi-departmental advocates is continually improving the Zoo’s recycling efforts, promoting alternative commuting strategies, and engaging with our community.

Environmental Policy

Utah’s Hogle Zoo will continue to pursue and implement best practices in developing sustainable operations, thus reducing the environmental impact of our operations while making financial and socially responsible decisions. The Zoo recognizes the threat of human-induced climate change to global biodiversity and the importance of minimizing our carbon footprint. The Zoo will continue to lead our community in global conservation efforts by using green practices in all aspects of our operations and demonstrating methods which can be adopted into sustainable lifestyles by all members of the community.
