Species Survival Plans

Initiated in 1981 by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), Species Survival Plans strive to manage chosen species and help maintain healthy, diverse populations that may become self-sustaining in the future. SSPs also assist with field projects in home range areas, help educate the public, and provide funding for research and reintroduction of animals back into the wild, when appropriate.  The Palm Beach Zoo currently participates in over 60 SSPs!
