The impact that zoos can have on the conservation of species is limited by the amount of space and resources they can offer to house and breed each species. Zoos therefore carefully balance the resources available with the potential contribution to a species’ survival. This means that each animal in the zoo must have a clearly defined role so that the available resources go to the best possible conservation outcomes. Read more here.
