About this book

In the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA) EAZA Conservation Education Standards document there is the following mission statement: ‘To mitigate the extinction of biodiversity through quality conservation education that raises awareness, connects people to nature and encourages sustainable behaviours in the millions of people that engage with EAZA zoos and aquariums annually’. The main thrust of this mission statement is replicated through many regional zoo and aquarium associations, individual zoos and aquariums, and conservation organizations globally. The mission statement complements the changing notion of biodiversity conservation, and of the role of modern zoos and aquariums, but it is still a relatively new and innovative way of thinking about the aims and outcomes of conservation education.

As zoological institutions evolve to meet the increasing crisis in biodiversity loss, conservation education must also embrace a change in its remit, and expand its scope and approaches accordingly. The papers published in Volume 50 of the International Zoo Yearbook: Future Perspectives in Conservation Education give a brief insight into how zoos and aquariums and their associated organizations are currently fulfilling this conservation-education mission, and how the future of conservation education has a vital role to play in supporting the diversity and complexity of the work undertaken by zoological institutions and like-minded conservation organizations.

The second half of this volume has the regular contributions on developments in the zoo world.
