In 2010, Dia Mirza had adopted two leopard cubs from the Lucknow Zoo named them Ashoka and Nakshatra. She had been requested by the zoo authorities to do so as the mother of the cubs was also named Dia.

Mirza is known for lending her support to many environmental and social causes and has been recognised by the UN for her contribution to environmental conservation, along with global celebrities such as Anne Hathaway, Angelina Jolie, Katy Perry, Cate Blanchett, and Emma Watson.
