• Once considered vulnerable primarily due to habitat loss, a Species Survival Plan is working to help save them from extinction.

     o Working with other zoos and related facilities, the population of approximately 100 animals in the United States is closely monitored and controlled to allow for the overall survival of the species.

     o While releases back to the wild may play a role in this animal’s ultimate survival, habitat protection is the single most important consideration.
