The Zoo is a place for people of all ages to take in the scenary and observe a variety of species in their natural habitats. It provides education on protecting wildlife as well as preserving native plantlife. The Center for Conservation in Forest Park uses the Zoo to study native wildlife and for conservation education. They are partnered with Forest Park Forever and the St. Louis Department of Parks to conduct projects on plant and wildlife conservation. An example of one of their projects: "On April 28-30, 2009, Forest Park Forever, the Saint Louis Zoo and St. Louis Department of Parks teamed up in a unique partnership to eradicate honeysuckle bushes near the Jewel Box in Forest Park. An hour a day for three days, a group of five goats nibbled shoots of invasive honeysuckle bushes that crowd out Missouri's native plants, such as hazelnuts, redbuds, spicebush, Missouri wildflowers and grasses, as well as young oaks and hickories. These plants provide food and cover for birds, for butterflies and other local wildlife. Forest Park Forever and the Saint Louis Zoo hope their experiment with bush honeysuckle will send a strong conservation message to the community about reinstating native vegetation." This site can be used to gain information on how to preserve wildlife and plantlife in the St. Vincent's area.
