NC Zoo Research and Conservation Report

by Mark MacAllister
August 28, 2009

The North Carolina Zoological Park is devoted to a wide range of conservation research projects that contribute to the maintenance of the world’s biodiversity and explore the intricacies of nature. The Zoo’s projects range from using satellites to track elephants in West Africa to protecting endangered sunflowers in North Carolina. While these initiatives are diverse, they are united by three common goals: protecting endangered species and habitats, improving people’s lives, and connecting the residents of North Carolina to the natural world.

The Zoo recently released a document outlining its many conservation initiatives. It is available for download here.
