Event Details

The Royal Zoological Society of South Australia (RZSSA) considers the delivery of its science and conservation objectives to be an organisational priority.  The RZSSA is involved in a variety of conservation activities, including direct co-ordination and management of threatened species programs to field support and captive breeding for release to the wild, as well as conservation education programs.

To encompass its increasing range of conservation activities, the RZSSA has developed Conservation Ark, its integrated science and conservation arm.

The activities of Conservation Ark are aimed at securing populations of animals, in natural ecosystems and habitats.  In order to do this we need a strong scientific basis for understanding species interactions and to find the best way to rehabilitate landscapes into resilient functioning ecosystems.  To this end, Conservation Ark is designed to integrate science, education, sustainable practices and conservation programs in order to achieve on-ground conservation.

Conservation Ark brings together the extensive expertise of RZSSA scientists in ecology, zoology, psychology and veterinary science, with many partners in universities, government departments, private, industry and conservation agencies.

A night visit to the Zoo is always a fascinating experience; more so when you get to hear all about the Zoo's work with Conservation Ark! We'll hear Dr Wendy Foster (the Zoo's Conservation Programs Manager) talk on Conservation Ark’s research and field activities, then Michael Shanahan (Interpretation Manager) will speak on connecting people with conservation. The evening will finish with a tour of the Zoo's Envirodome.
