Saving Animals from Extinction at the Birmingham
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.
