Rotterdam Zoo is committed to the concept of coordinated captive breeding programmes as a means of maintaining viable, self-sustaining populations of endangered species in captivity. As a result the zoo participates in numerous EEPs (European Endangered Species breeding Programme) and other breeding programmes. In addition members of the zoo personnel coordinate seven EEPs and compile two European and one international studbook as well as chairing two of the European TAGs (Taxon Advisory Groups). In this part of the Rotterdam Zoo website we will make a number of the documents arising out of these activities, available to a our colleagues in other zoos.
