We help them to survive

We help them to survive

Prague Zoo is intensely involved in the protection of animal species, whether they live under human care or in their natural habitats. Join us in helping them to survive! 

Nature conservation holds an indelible place among the principal goals pursued by a modern zoological garden. It takes a variety of forms: we can protect individual animal species, but also entire ecosystems. Zoological gardens help protect endangered species by successfully breeding them (ex-situ conservation) and by helping to protect species in their natural habitats (in-situ conservation). Last but not least, nature conservation is advanced by educational and awareness-raising activities, something to which zoological gardens conscientiously apply themselves.

Prague Zoo is engaged both in ex-situ and in-situ conservation. It coordinates the breeding of selected species as part of conservation programs and keeps studbooks, but it also takes part in activities aimed at helping species survive in the wild, sometimes even running these activities. In many conservation projects, both approaches combine, with animals born in Prague Zoo returning to their ancestral homeland to be released into the wild.
