Conservation Actions

The goal of conservation education is to provide the public with personal and meaningful connections to nature. Through the use of effective conservation messages, people learn simple ways they can make a difference for wildlife and wild places everywhere. This section features ideas and articles on every day conservation actions that can be shared with and practiced by visitors and educators alike.

Climate Change: Actions to Protect Biodiversity and Ecosystems
Join IZE in protecting wildlife and wild places from climate change. We can each take action to decrease our carbon footprint and make a positive change for biodiversity and ecosystems.

Zoos Go Green!
In order to "walk the talk," zoos should lead the green practice movement. At the 2008 IZE Conference, green practices from zoos around the world were gathered. Hopefully these ideas will provide inspiration for your zoo.
