The CBSG Working Group Design Timeline
With the effort to understand the conservation needs of zoos, we started collaborating with the Conservation Breeding Specialist Group (CBSG). We created a working group called Designing Zoos for Survival of Species in which we are discussing how the physical environment of a zoo could make a difference in the ability of zoos to contribute more effectively to sustainability of animal populations, in residency, and in the wild. As a result of this working group we started to develop a graphic guideline we call Designing Zoos for Survival of Species - Design Process Timeline. The goal of this guideline is to serve as an online tool that helps zoo community make informed decisions during planning of any project and, ultimately, make a positive difference in our ability to support survival of species.
