Product Overview

Modern zoos and aquaria are playing an increasingly active and important role in protecting and managing global biodiversity. Many zoos include wildlife conservation in their mission and have started changing the focus of their institutions in order to increase even further the benefits of their activities for in situ wildlife conservation. With these developments, the following searching questions are now being asked: What is the true role of zoos in conservation? How can they contribute more significantly to global conservation efforts? What are the unique attributes of zoos that can be applied in the conservation landscape? And should zoos be doing more? In parallel with this voluntary movement, legal requirements for zoos to support conservation in the wild are also becoming more stringent. This 2007 book defines a conservation vision for zoos and aquaria that will be of interest to those working in zoos, alongside practitioners and researchers in conservation. *Author: Zimmerman, Alexandra/ Hatchwell, Matthew/ Dickie, Lesley *Series Title: Conservation Biology (Hardcover) *Series Number: 15 *Binding Type: Hardcover *Number of Pages: 373 *Publication Date: 2007/08/23 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.02 x 6.35 x 0.92 inches
