Conservation Strategy 2015

"(...) Several WAZA members are providing critical financial support to field-based conservation and significant investments are made in wildlife conservation every year. " 

Inger Anderson, Director IUCN, June 2015


"This Campaign addresses how commercially-based human activities impact marine species conservation. It focuses on how zoos and aquariums work and will encourage participants to make real changes to their working practices by applying the already shared vision to united objectives for marine biodiversity management and protection."
