Conservation and reintroduction programmes

This report seeks to analyse the success of Barcelona Zoo in achieving its aims of conservation and reintroduction for the species it houses. These are two of the fundamental pillars by which zoos justify their existence and current dynamics.

The number of animals in conservation programmes is statistically analysed here, as is the number of animals reintroduced into their natural habitat and the number of animals living in the Zoo that are not endangered in the wild. In order to carry out this study, we have based our analysis on the animals referenced in Barcelona Zoo’s “Animal Inventory 31.12.2013”.
