The World Asso­ci­a­tion of Zoos and Aquar­i­ums (WAZA) has released a book ded­i­cated to the con­ser­va­tion strat­egy of their mem­bers. “Build­ing a future for wildlife” is the slo­gan of the World Zoo and Aquar­ium Con­ser­va­tion Strat­egy. Mod­ern zoos and aquar­i­ums are indeed play­ing an increas­ingly active and impor­tant role in con­serv­ing species in their nat­ural habi­tat. This richly illus­trated book pro­vides an overview of the part­ners, approaches and achieve­ments of the world zoo and aquar­ium com­mu­nity in wildlife con­ser­va­tion. The book’s main focus is on 25 con­ser­va­tion suc­cess sto­ries from around the globe, por­tray­ing the many ways in which zoos and aquar­i­ums are com­mit­ted to bio­di­ver­sity con­ser­va­tion.
