The EAZA Conservation Database is an online tool to facilitate and coordinate cooperation and communication on conservation efforts within as well as outside of the zoo community.
One of the most important tools in conservation is measurement – not just measurement of species, but also measurement of what is being done. EAZA’s new online Conservation Database (Members only) documents conservation work being done by the members of the Association, and helps our members work out the best ways for them to contribute – filling gaps in funding or provision of expertise and making our support more effective at helping in situ conservationists to protect wildlife.
While we undertake significant conservation action, supporting thousands of species, habitats and local peoples to the tune of tens of millions of Euro each year, we are mindful that as the threats to the natural world accelerate we need to continually evaluate and, where possible, increase our efforts. To maximise the conservation action of all our members we aim to collate and evaluate the total conservation actions undertaken by the EAZA community through the EAZA Conservation Database.
