What is EARTH LTD?
Our mission is to inspire, engage, and empower people in the protection and conservation of our planet’s biodiversity and future, both locally and globally.
What is EARTH Limited?
EARTH Limited is a 501 (c)(3) conservation education non-profit organization based in Southwick’s Zoo in Mendon, Massachusetts. We provide zoo visitors and the community with high quality educational programming. Our partnership with the zoo also allows us to offer on-site fundraising through events like our annual Benefit EARTH Bash, Winos for Rhinos, and EARTH Awareness Day.
We also partner with and/or provide support to a variety of environmental and conservation initiatives, both local and global, including rhinoceros conservation and the Trumpeter Swan Restoration Project. Our goal is to educate the public about the vast number of environmental concerns and to inspire people to take action in preserving the planet we all share.
EARTH Limited’s programs and projects are supported by memberships. Members of EARTH receive free general admission to Southwick’s Zoo in addition to invitations to member-only events and discounts on many of our programs.
Our mission is to inspire, engage, and connect with people in the protection and conservation of our planet’s biodiversity and future.
Our vision is to realize a world where humans live in sustainable balance with all species, their ecosystems, and the environment, while supporting and protecting biodiversity.
The Earth Discovery Center will be a gateway to the world where visitors have a transformational experience with our planet and conservation. This engagement will take place through the center’s unique experiential programs that transport visitors to key parts of the world, where there is a vivid interface between human communities and wildlife.
