The Zoo ($20 million) is owned and operated by the Zoological Society of Pittsburgh and welcomes approximately 900,000 visitors annually to its 77-acre campus. It is one of just a handful in the United States with a substantial, stand-alone aquarium. In addition, the Zoo owns and operates the 1,000-acre International Conservation Center, a conservation, research, education, breeding, and training facilities, established and dedicated to specializing in the care and breeding of African elephants. Over the past decade, the Zoo has supported over 245 conservation projects in over 60 countries.
The board is seeking a visionary zoo leader to chart an inspirational and sustainable new course for the organization. This is an exciting opportunity to ensure a beloved local attraction and important contributor to wildlife and habitat conservation achieves even greater impact and success during its next phase in history.
