Humanity relies on nature - and time is running out for many species. The accumulated knowledge of zoos and aquariums is crucial in the fight to save biodiversity. EAZA members are at the forefront of wildlife conservation.

This film, produced to mark International Year of Biodiversity 2010, explores some of the links between zoos and field conservation projects.
