Conservation 2014-03-20T14:49:26+00:00


Modern day zoos have a responsibility to carry out a number of important roles. Education, Recreation, Research and Conservation are at the forefront of the mission of Five Sisters Zoo.

Conservation is a key element into helping work towards the preservation of animal species, many of which are endangered. Scientists estimate that a third of all animal and plant species on Earth face a high risk of extinction within this century. Five Sisters Zoo is part of the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquaria (BIAZA), along with many other UK zoos which all work together to co-ordinate breeding programmes, keep standards high, and raise awareness of conservation issues through educational interpretation and presentations.
