Sponsor a Species

New Jersey is the most densely populated state in the United States, so education is a key component in the protection of our state's natural element.

TNC programs are presented throughout New Jersey annually to over 23,000 people. While we do not maintain a zoo, TNC does house a small collection of animals that cannot be released into the wild. These animals help to educate visitors about the needs of biodiversity and the importance of protecting habitats. TNC’s animal ambassadors are native or related to local species found throughout New Jersey. Many of the species are endangered, threatened, or considered a species of special concern. Learn more about our non-releasable animals by visiting our Animal Ambassadors page.

Caring for these abandoned and abused wildlife requires thousands of dollars each year so that we may provide food, shelter, medical care, and a nurturing environment for them to live in. It take a lot of help from people like you!

Help us care for these amazing animals by contributing to the cost of their upkeep. Your donation assists the center by providing food and medical care, improving enclosures, and supporting staff who care for them.
