From 20 to 24 September 2021 was held the European Association of Zoo and Aquaria (EAZA) Online Annual Conference 2021. The conference brings together professionals from zoological parks as well as conservation practitioners. EAZA members notably implements population management programmes for animal species that are managed by EAZA Members, including ex-situ management of population and the involvement and/or supports of numerous in-situ conservation programs. Species groups are managed through Taxon Advisory Groups, leading in their species management programs.
Association Anoulak has been receiving the support of several EAZA members for our conservation programs and notably on Gibbons. We were invited by the Gibbon Taxon Advisory Group to present an update of our program during their session on the 22 September.
Our presentation can be viewed below.
EAZA’s approach to species conservation, called the One Plan approach, recognises that zoos and in situ conservationists need not only to work together to protect animals, but also to engage the public of their communities to take the lead in demanding action from authorities, governments, corporations and themselves so that together we can reduce the stress on endangered species and their habitats.
