Conservation is what zoos do!

Many species are alive today thanks to zoos. Through successful breeding programmes and in situ conservation efforts, zoo are making a bit difference for our natural world.

The Black - footed cat

Black-footed cats are incredibly difficult to breed in captivity. This elusive, small cat is shy and prone to kidney disease. Although there is a group working in situ the wild numbers are based on estimates.

Captive populations are small but Lory Park Zoo has a successful breeding pair. 

Studying these animals in captivity will help us to develop a successful conservation programme for them. 

Lory Park is working hard with current holders to put this is place.
