Conservation is an integral component of Out of Africa Wildlife Park’s ongoing mission to preserve, protect, and provide for the animals, both in our care and abroad. As part of that mission the park is home to many endangered species, some of which include Siberian and Indochinese tigers, ring-tailed lemurs, and African lions. Others park inhabitants, like the Barbary lion and White Bengal are gone from the wild altogether, only to be found in captivity. In addition to species listed as endangered, many of our resident animals are listed as near threatened, meaning the population is at risk of becoming endangered. Patagonian cavy and gemsbok are just a few of the animals at the park that are currently listed as such.
Regardless of the many factors that threaten animals today, the bottom line is that once an animal is extinct, it’s gone forever. Species such as the black rhino are truly on the edge. Wildlife foundations, zoos, conservation organizations, and field researchers have worked together for many years to help fight for their survival. Protecting endangered species, helping them breed, and encouraging the survival of the species are all efforts that we must take seriously.
