Conservation in Action!

Our conservation efforts have spanned the globe and our staff contribute to positive conservation outcomes through our conservation and sustainability programs in addition to managing and participating in captive breeding and species management programs.


Zoos SA conservation staff have a broad and extensive range of skills that contribute to Zoos SA’s important role in saving species and connecting people with nature.  Conservation staff members have science expertise in conservation biology, ecology, botany, zoology, threatened species management and natural resource management. Our staff also have extensive experience and skills in community and stakeholder engagement, including community development, Aboriginal land management, cultural heritage, conservation planning and facilitation. Increasingly our staff are involved in science and conservation communication and education, recognising the need to engage the wider community in our conservation work.

Captive Breeding and Species Management

Zoos SA staff are internationally recognised for their captive breeding experience and skills. Zoos SA veterinary and conservation staff have been at the forefront of developing cross-fostering techniques that have contributed to safeguarding a number of wallaby species from possible extinction. Staff across our curatorial, animal management and animal health teams have expertise in species management, wildlife ethics and wildlife health. Staff members manage a number of Australasian Species Management Program (ASMP) studbooks, convene Taxon Advisory Groups under the ASMP program and/or participate in groups coordinating the implementation of Global Species Management Plans.
