Frankfurt Zoological Society

The Frankfurt Zoological Society (FZS) was established in 1858. The Society’s main focus lies in eastern Africa, where its president, Professor Dr. Bernhard Grzimek, invested much time and effort. The society’s work is committed to conserving biological diversity. FZS is currently involved in 70 conservation projects in 30 countries. Although the society’s main purpose is global nature conservation, it also supports the Frankfurt Zoological Garden, which was initiated 150 years ago by the Frankfurt Zoological Society.
