Abstract

Falling into the top four threats to biodiversity, human activity is impacting species around the globe like never before. Zoological conservation of threatened species aids in the support and reestablishment of these dwindling populations. The examination of conservation work done in the U.S compared to foreign efforts provides insight into strengths, reveals weaknesses, and will help us better serve threatened species around the world. The status of conservation in the U.S. as well as foreign efforts were assessed through literary review of published reports from accredited organizations. As zoologic conservation aims to conserve threatened species, it is also important to examine how these efforts may be causing indirect harm. The lack of reporting of failed conservation efforts also contributes to the uncertainty surrounding the population status of many species and is an area in need of betterment in the literature surrounding conservation.
