23-11-2020 Rotterdam King Willem-Alexander visited the Zoo Diergaarde Blijdorp in Rotterdam.
Zoos, conservation organizations and researchers worldwide collaborate in international research and breeding programs to keep animal populations healthy.
They do this through, among other things, the European Endagered Species Program (EEP) of the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA).
Zoos have seen a decline in income due to closures or limited visiting options.
This gives them less financial options to invest in research and breeding programs.
Travel restrictions also hinder the transport of animals for breeding programs.
