Abstract

Zoos and aquariums are well-positioned to educate large numbers of visitors regarding the consequences of human activities for animals and the environment, to facilitate personal reflection on environmental actions and encourage the adoption of pro-wildlife behaviors. Indeed, most modern zoos stress the importance of both conservation and education in their mission statements, although few have been able to effectively demonstrate their impact in this regard.
