European zoos publish plant conservation strategy 2013-2016
18 September 2013
The European Association of Zoos and Aquariums have published a plant conservation strategy for 2013-2016. The Strategy has 6 objectives and 5 targets to be achieved by 2016.
As described in the Strategy, EAZA has a valuable part to play in plant conservation. Its members are conservation organisations, education organisations and visitor attractions. One in 5 of the population of Europe visits an EAZA zoo annually, which gives zoos a unique opportunity to engage with the people of Europe. The potential for positive actions, both by zoos and their visitors is vast. We must aim to inspire today’s zoo visitors to be tomorrow’s plant conservation champions.
