Saving Animals From Extinction

Saving Animals From Extinction

One of the most powerful tools to help threatened and endangered species is Saving Animals From Extinction (SAFE), a program managed by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). SAFE is featured at all 229 AZA-accredited institutions, including RWP Zoo, with the goal of engaging and educating visitors about our conservation initiatives, and how they impact local, regional, and global environments.

Today, visitors at the Zoo can learn about over 100 different species, many of whom are on the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s (IUCN) Red List, ranging from “Critically Endangered” to “Near Threatened.”
