Conservation work at Kolmården
In a world with pollution, war and climate change, many species are threatened by extinction. This makes conservation work in zoos more important than ever. At Kolmården Wildlife Park, many animals are involved in long term conservation programs with the goal to save the species from becoming extinct.
Kolmården Wildlife Park is part of 34 conservation programs focusing on endangered species within the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria EAZA. Animals kept in zoos around Europe can serve as a backup if their wild conspecifics where to become extinct or if the situation were to worsen for these species. At Kolmården we also work hard to protect the animals’ natural environments, primarily through Kolmården Foundation.
