If you’ve purchased a home in Utah and lived here any amount of time, then you are familiar with the absolutely stunning landscape. Utah is home to a number of charities that work effortless to protect and preserve the environment. Check them out below!
Friends of Great Salt Lake
The Friends of Great Salt Lake Charity is spreading public awareness for conservation efforts of the Great Salt Lake Ecosystem. They do so by offering a number of wonderful programs like one that is a 4th-grade field trip for local students. The charity has been focusing their conservation efforts on the Great Salt Lake since 1994.
Founded in 1986, Hawkwatch International monitors and protects birds of prey. Not only do they work to protect the birds, but they also donate a substantial amount of money to scientific research and education programs. An impressive 83 percent of the charity’s finances go to supporting its cause. Hawkwatch International is located out of Salt Lake City, Utah.

Mule Deer Foundation
In an effort to preserve the mule deer and black-tailed deer habitats, the Mule Deer Foundation was formed by Emmett Burroughs. They have grown significantly since 1988 and now have chapters in over 24 states! They are completely upfront in their conservation and education efforts, so all of their annual expense reports can be easily located on their website.
Round River Conservation Studies
If you’re looking for a charity in Utah that raises educational awareness for local and national wilderness, then check out Round River Conservation Studies. They believe that the conservation of wildlife and wildness requires the conscious effort of those who depend on the area.

Utah Zoological Society
Utah’s Hogle Zoo is much more than a community event. The Hogle Zoo aims to nurture understanding and respect for the wildlife community through attention-grabbing education programs, jaw-dropping exhibits, and a commitment to excellence. They have implemented a number of practices around the zoo that are beneficial for the whole planet, like their recycling efforts and LEED buildings. LEED buildings are those that are eco-conscious and healthy for those that live and work within them. The Utah Zoological Society also works closely with another charity, the Utah Chapter Of The American Association Of Zoo Keepers (AAZK). Visit the zoo to support their efforts towards saving wildlife both within Utah and around the globe!
