International Zoo Yearbook

The International Zoo Yearbook is an international forum for the exchange of information on the role of zoos in the conservation of biodiversity, species and habitats.

Investigative and data-collection work into the biology and behaviour of wild animals is increasingly dependent on co-ordinated effort and shared results between all institutions engaged in the study and preservation of wildlife.

Latest Volume information: Volume 50 Future Perspectives in Conservation Education

Guest Editor: Sarah Thomas

In parallel with the changing face of zoos and conservation during the last few decades, the ways zoos and aquariums educate, engage and inspire their audiences has radically changed. As we pass the middle of the Decade of Biodiversity and we can see the 2020 milestone on the horizon, this volume of the International Zoo Yearbook is timely not only to reflect and celebrate current programmes, but also to provide the opportunity to shape the agenda for future priorities and perspectives that support maximum conservation-education impact.
