Conserving our natural resources


Michigan is blessed with an abundance of wildlife and natural resources.  Conserving the environment takes a lot of effort. That includes work done by everyone from scientists to volunteers. Believe it or not, there are great ways to get involved.

More people can become involved in helping to protect our natural resources. Locally, John Ball Zoo is a perfect place to start.

The zoo’s mission is to connect people with wildlife and offer them opportunities and ways to engage in the conservation of wildlife. 

The more people become aware of the small changes they can make that have a positive impact on our wildlife and natural resources the better we’ll all be.
