The Zoological Society of New Jersey and Essex County Turtle Back Zoo participate in three global conservation initiatives: Conservation Project Funding, Saving Animals from Extinction (SAFE) program, and Species Survival Plan (SSP) program. In 2016, AZA-accredited facilities contributed over $200 million to conservation initiatives; Turtle Back Zoo’s nearly $200,000 share is contributed by the Zoological Society of New Jersey, the non-profit arm of Turtle Back Zoo.
