EU Zoos and Science in the 21st Century: engaging the public in nature conservation

Objective

The main objective of this proposal is to engage public in the delineation of large-scale activities at European Zoos and Marine Parks, focused on nature conservation and biodiversity. Worldwide Zoos and Marine Parks have changed immensely over the last 50 years. Modern Zoos and Marine Parks in Europe have specific areas of intervention: Education, Entertainment, Conservation, and Research. The Zoos and Mrine Parks play a key-role in communicating science to the general public, of all age groups, and represent a unique vehicle for the dissemination of important scientific adavances and future challenges in actual topics of interest to European citizens, such as nature conservation and biodiversity. Additionally Zoos and Marine Parks represent excellent scenarios for public debates in a relaxed context and inspiring context.
