World Zoo and Aquarium Conservation Strategy
The World Zoo and Aquarium Conservation Strategy: Building a Future for Wildlife

The World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA) produced the first World Zoo Conservation Strategy in 1993. This 2005 update builds on the previous document in aiming to bring zoos and aquariums further into the mainstream of biodiversity conservation and sustainable development.

The document embodies the efforts of an enormous number of zoo professionals from throughout the WAZA constituency, which gives this update a genuinely international flavour. Traditional areas of zoo activity such as education, science and small population management, are refreshed in this volume and some new subject areas are tackled, reflecting developments in conservation thinking and the evolution of zoos over the past decade. In particular, themes like partnerships, politics, ethics and sustainability are brought to the fore.
