Our Goals

Ensure preservation of the largest remaining piece of open space owned by the city of Oakland for wildlife habitat, native plants and free public access.

Dissuade the Zoo from  its current ill-conceived expansion plan and work toward a more modest plan that serves an authentic conservation goal: preserving wildlife habitat.

Reduce or mitigate traffic congestion, noise/light and air pollution impacts on surrounding communities and wildlife.

Increase community awareness of the threats to open space and wildlife habitat and the relationships between the fight to protect Knowland Park and other community concerns.

Require the City to complete a full Environmental Impact Report.
