The collection holds of the records of the international programs of the New York Zoological Society (NYZS), with records relating to NYZS sponsorship of field research and wildlife conservation projects carried out from the 1970s to the early 1990s. These grants funded ecological studies of animals and regions, as well as projects promoting wildlife conservation education, conservation legislation, and the creation of protected areas. The bulk of the collection consists of correspondence between NYZS officials and project grantees, administrative records relating to grant approval and funding processes, and the resulting field reports and publications

Alistair D. Graham, a Kenyan wildlife conservation biologist specializing in crocodiles, co-founded Wildlife Services, Ltd. in 1964. Included here are original field data sheets recording morphometric measurements of Nile crocodile populations at Lake Turkana, maps of crocodile nesting sites in the Okavango Delta, and original data from other sites such as Kabalega Falls National Park (Uganda) and Nechisar National Park (Ethiopia). The collection documents professional wildlife conservation and management practices in East and Southern Africa during the second half of the 20th century. Several of the surveys were the first time their subject populations were mapped, so they may serve as baseline references for future research
