Committed to Conservation

Zoo New England participates in the Baird’s Tapir, Western Lowland Gorilla, Pygmy Hippo and De Brazza’s Monkey Species Survival Plans (SSP), which is a cooperative, inter-zoo program coordinated nationally through the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). SSPs help to ensure the survival of selected species in zoos and aquariums, most of which are threatened or endangered, and enhance conservation of these species in the wild.
