Who We Are

The Conservation Centers for Species Survival [C2S2] and member institutions are uniquely positioned to secure populations of endangered species for assurance and reintroductions. Given continued threats to critical habitats, an assurance population secured today is many species best bet for long-term survival.

A Partnership of Conservation Centers

The Conservation Centers are world leaders that have recovered some of the rarest species on the planet, from the giant panda to the black-footed ferret to the scimitar-horned oryx. The collaboration represents 100,000 acres of large, naturalistic areas and decades of experience in wildlife management, recovery management and reintroduction programs.

The Wilds has grown into one of North America's largest conservation centers, with more than 500 animals representing 28 species, including some, such as Père David's deer, which are only alive in captivity.

We are very excited to have North Carolina Zoo join C2S2 as a Conservation Center! As we expand our membership and partner network, we expand our collaborative efforts in conservation to assure a future for wildlife.
