The Zoo's main mission is to help the conservation of wildlife and biodiversity in the world, complementing their work with other zoos, universities and scientific institutions. To achieve this, we must carry out decisive action in the field of education and entertainment awareness in respect of species, habitats and ecosystems in general. For this reason, the Zoo should be a key element in the strategy of preserving biodiversity that promotes the city.
The entertainment provided by the Zoo is a tool of great value to develop this task successfully. Moreover, the Zoo contributes to increasing the scientific knowledge indispensable for the preservation, based on their own research and collaboration with other research centers. Zoo also aim its organizational culture embraces the values of sustainability, including social responsibility and the environment. These values permeate all the work carried out at the zoo and be promoted to the relational network (Agenda 21). In summary, the values that are implicit in the work of the Zoo must be transparency, commitment and willingness to serve in nature and society.
The future scenario Zoo is based on the basics strategy set by the World Zoo and Aquarium Conservation urging zoos to increase conservation actions in situ (in nature) and developing research programs both in situ and ex situ (in zoos).
You should therefore carry out more educational programs, both local and global, to engage proactively population.
