Saving Animals from Extinction at the Birmingham Zoo 

On the 10th Anniversary of Endangered Species Day, the Birmingham Zoo highlighted the growing national importance of working on saving endangered species from extinction. Visitors experienced special keeper chats relating to how they can help with saving animals from extinction (SAFE). The spotlighted animals at the Birmingham Zoo range from vulnerable to critically endangered and are part of a larger, national effort organized by the Association of Zoos & Aquariums (AZA), of which the Birmingham Zoo is a member. Guests were able to learn about the threats that the Southern white rhino, Sumatran orangutans, Malayan tiger, Egyptian tortoise, gopher tortoise and cassowary are facing in the wild. These animals are in danger of going extinct and never being seen again. Guests also had the opportunity to speak with educators at several different animal exhibits.

As part of AZA SAFE, we encourage you to find out what YOU can do to help prevent these, and many other animals from the threat of extinction. For more information on SAFE, please visit www.aza.org.
