Conservation Efforts & Programs

Zoo Conservation Outreach Group (ZCOG)

ZCOG is an organization made up of numerous zoos throughout the United States who have pooled their resources to support wildlife conservation in Central and South America. The Bergen County Zoo is an institutional member of ZCOG.

Brazilian Ocelot Consortium

This organization was formed to create a sustainable captive population of Brazilian ocelots in the United States. The Bergen County Zoo is one of 10 founding members of this organization and, as such, will receive a pair of Brazilian-born ocelots that will serve as part of the founding population for this species in North American zoos.
