CAZA and its members are committed to the Canadian conservation movement and the preservation of wildlife.
Canada’s accredited zoos and aquariums have a long and distinguished record of service in conservation programs. They collaborate regularly with government agencies and volunteer organizations in work aimed at the preservation of species throughout Canada and in many other countries around the world.
CAZA member zoos and aquariums are dedicated to the highest standards of animal care. They nurture, protect and care for more than 100,000 animals representing over 2000 species. Often these animals are the last representatives of endangered species.
Private donors and government research grants have made the Zoo and Aquarium research, conservation, and education work possible. But as the need for conservation grows, so does the need for support.
Every year, animals born at Zoos and Aquariums as part of organized conservation programs are reintroduced to protect parts of their original habitat. Groundbreaking research is respected and used worldwide and education programs enrich the lives of participants, and help preserve our local species and ecosystems.
