Zoological Society of Milwaukee


The Zoological Society of Milwaukee (ZSM) was established in 1910 as an informal group of community leaders who bought animals and raised funds for the Zoo. Today it is a private non-profit 501(c)3 organization governed by a board of 42 directors and 28 honorary directors. The ZSM has 61 employees who manage daily operations and programs. In addition to staff, there are 40+ interns, grantees, ad-hoc teachers and conservation field employees who help to fulfill the ZSM's mission. This year the ZSM has pledged to raise $6.37 million to support the Milwaukee County Zoo. That support includes providing public education through the ZSM’s Conservation Education Department and the ZSM’s Creative Department. The ZSM also supports Zoo conservation programs and projects.
