Description

Zoos work at the forefront of species conservation efforts worldwide. For example, the Hellbender (Cryptobranchus alleganiensis) is a giant, fully aquatic salamander that has experienced range-wide declines throughout the past several decades. To help combat these declines and ensure a future for the species, many zoos have joined with universities, government agencies, and other conservation groups to implement much-needed conservation initiatives. This 16-page PDF describes the joint conservation, research, and education efforts of these groups to help the hellbender.
