Species Survival Plans

The Kori Bustard Species Survival Plan supports and develops captive breeding programs, has developed a husbandry manual for zoos, supports field research, and educates the public about issues related to bustard conservation. SSPs are a collaboration between zoos, field scientists, and educators.
