Conservation and endangered species

Birmingham Wildlife Conservation Park plays an important role in conservation by breeding animals at risk of extinction in the wild.

We work together with other zoos and conservation parks to build and maintain healthy populations of endangered species. Through our activities and events, we also raise awareness of threats to endangered species and their habitats.

We are full members of the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquaria and of the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria. Through these organisations, we take part in a number of high profile European Endangered Species Programmes.
