Breeding Programs ~

A mission of education, protection, and caring

Good Zoo Breeding Program Oglebay Good Zoo is one of only 230 AZA-accredited zoos or aquariums, and we are the only accredited zoo or aquarium in the state of West Virginia. In addition to providing family friendly, lifelong learning opportunities, we participate in 23 conservation breeding programs known as SSP’s, or Species Survival Programs, that focus on sustainable breeding and management of the species in our care. Several of the SSP’s that the zoo participates in include the golden lion tamarin, Grevy’s zebra, cheetah, mongoose lemur, and red panda SSP’s.
