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 survival long term.
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 efforts, and reintroduction programs.
Saving native species and sustaining a legacy of biodiversity in our backyards
By conducting research across a variety of species at the Conservation Centers, on wildlife ranches, in zoos, and in the wild, we are developing the knowledge necessary to enable source populations and in-range populations to prosper. In all cases, our ultimate goal is to create populations and information that directly benefit the species in nature. Learn More
