In 2015, AZA’s Wildlife Conservation and Management Committee launched a new initiative to help guide Taxon Advisory Group leaders through a strategic planning process. In this process, the focus isn’t just on the overarching goal of population sustainability, but to use sustainability tools, such as Population Viability Analyses (PVAs), the Species Survival Plan® Sustainability Database, regional collection plans, population trends and other data to enhance species selection and help develop specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time-bound goals (aka SMART goals) for SSPs.
