The Association of Zoos & Aquariums, with its member aquariums and zoos and a variety of partners, are taking action to save species through AZA SAFE: Saving Animals From Extinction. SAFE combines the power of zoo and aquarium visitors with the resources and collective expertise of AZA members and partners, all focused on saving species. Our collective action will help save vulnerable wildlife species from extinction and protect them for future generations.
Without help, thousands of endangered species – from giraffes and gorillas to toads and butterflies – could be gone in a blink. To recognize Endangered Species Day on Friday, May 20, the Detroit Zoological Society highlighted some of the critical wildlife conservation initiatives at the Detroit Zoo.
