The Wildlife Conservation Society, (WCS), endeavours to save wildlife and wild lands though careful use of science, conservation around the world, education and through a system of urban wildlife parks.
The wildlife parks include the Bronx Zoo, New York Aquarium, Central Park Zoo, Queens Zoo and Prospect Park Zoo. The Bronx Zoo is a world-famous zoo in The Bronx, New York. ... The Central Park Zoo is a zoo located in Central Park in New York City. ... The Queens Zoo is a 5 acre (20,000 m²) zoo located in New York City. ... The Prospect Park Zoo is a zoo located in Prospect Park, Brooklyn, New York. ...
Science is used around the world to monitor nature and permit reports on "how nature is faring". A recent WCS report demonstated that humans inhabit or traverse 83% of the world's land surface and influence 98% of the arable land.
The WildlifeConservationSociety's Living Landscape Program is based on a simple reality: animals do not recognize park boundaries, particularly wide-ranging species such as elephants, bears and jaguars.
Indeed, while parks are essential for conservation, the larger landscape adjacent to protected areas, with both humans and animals living within it, is often as important as the protected core.
Conservation in the real world is not only about establishing preserves to protect Earth’s diversity, but going beyond them to save wildlife on all fronts.
The WildlifeConservationSociety saves wildlife and wild lands through careful science, international conservation, education, and the management of the world’s largest system of urban wildlife parks.
These activities change attitudes toward nature and help people imagine wildlife and humans living in sustainable interaction on both a local and a global scale.
WCS conservationists are seeing stripes—fl and orange ones—thanks to an ambitious new business plan for boosting the numbers of tigers that reside in a dozen key reserves by 50 percent over the next ten years.
