Mission: The mission of the Wildlife Conservation Trust is to help preserve species threatened with extinction. The Trusts are in support of: 1) The propagation of rare and endangered species in captivity as an aid to their survival, 2) The reintroduction of rare and endangered species to their native habitats, and the restoration of these habitats to preserve the species in the wild, 3) Research on these species in captivity and in the wild, so that we may better understand their biology, ecology and behavior, and develop plans for their sustained management, 4) The education of all persons concerning the value of wildlife, particularly those from developing countries living in close association with rare and endangered species, 5) The professional training of zoologists and conservation biologists, particularly those from the developing countries of the world, 6) The formulation of strategies and policy activities for the conservation of endangered species and their habitats where appropriate.
