The Role of Modern Zoos in Great Ape Conservation

GRASP-UNEP | 05/05/16

The role of zoos has evolved to prioritize research, education, and conservation in modern times. While some groups still condemn their existence based on a reputation of entertainment and fun-fairs started in the 1800s, many zoos are working hard to change that narrative. In collaboration with scientific agencies, governments and other conservation bodies, zoos are now playing their part in the much bigger picture of the conservation of our natural world.

Do you think zoos enhance or hinder great ape conservation efforts? Do you think the public perception of the role of zoos in conservation will ever change? 

Join GRASP and invited experts from leading zoos and zoo associations and conservation scientist as we discuss the ‘The Role of Modern Zoos in Great Ape Conservation.’
