The Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo provides funding for local and international conservation projects every year. One program, Kids4Nature, incorporates a public vote to determine funding allocation. This year’s Kids4Nature program featured three species: African lions, Javan gibbons, and Sandhill Cranes. All three species received funding, with lions receiving the majority.
