The furtherance of wildlife conservation has become the predominant objective of the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria and its members. The zoo and aquarium community's role in conservation extends far beyond helping to save endangered species and populations through ex situ breeding programmes. Through their links with and support of in situ projects, research, conservation education and capacity building, advocacy and fund raising, many members of EAZA are active in the conservation of habitats and entire ecosystems.
The EAZA Conservation Database is an online tool to facilitate and coordinate cooperation and communication on conservation efforts within as well as outside of the zoo community.
