    The world’s wildlife is under threat. And we're playing a big part in the battle to protect threatened species and habitats.


    Scientists reckon a third of all animal and plant species on Earth face a high risk of extinction within this century. Extinction: that’s it. Gone - forever.


    We have to fight back. And we are. Our mission is to be a major force in conserving biodiversity worldwide, and we do it through a combination of field conservation, research, conservation breeding, animal welfare, and education.


    There’s a worldwide network of zoos, who join forces to co-ordinate conservation work.


    We belong to a number of UK, European and international organisations, including the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums (BIAZA), the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA) and the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA).


    We work together to co-ordinate breeding programmes, help zoos do more for conservation, and keep standards high in every zoo.
