The furtherance of wildlife conservation has become the predominant objective of EAZA and its members. It's now clear that the zoo and aquarium community's role in conservation extends far beyond helping to save endangered species through ex situ breeding programmes. Through their links with in situ projects many members of EAZA are active in the conservation of habitats and entire ecosystems. The EAZA Conservation Forum is a biennial event bringing together over 180 representatives of zoos and aquariums, conservation organisations and in situ conservation projects for three days of workshops, presentations and other activities.
The 6th edition of the Conservation Forum will be hosted by Zagreb Zoo, Croatia from 19-23 May 2020
