BREEDING PROGRAMS

Zurich Zoo is involved with various animal species in the European Conservation Breeding Programme EEP and the European Herd Book ESB. The aim of the breeding programmes is to create self-sustaining zoo animal populations with the highest possible genetic variability. In the sense of reserve populations, they also provide animals for reintroduction if required.

Further information on the breeding programmes can be obtained from the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria EAZA.
