Living Coasts, together with our sister zoos, Newquay Zoo and Paignton Zoo, takes part in over 100 breeding programmes which are co-ordinated through the European Association of Zoos and Aquariums (EAZA).
Breeding programmes are of paramount importance when it comes to maintaining the genetically healthy populations of species in captivity. Zoos taking part in breeding programmes work together and exchange individual animals in order to achieve the best genetic combinations for breeding.
