New research, shared late last month in the Future of Aquariums/Europe webinar presented by Impacts Experience and Species360, shows that visitors increasingly expect aquariums to be conservation institutions. What does this mean for post-pandemic recovery? And how have closures helped aquariums to increase their presence “outside the walls” of their facilities?
Watch the full Webinar here for a complete review of the research and its findings.
A panel discussion followed the Webinar, including:
- Núria Baylina, Curator and Head of Conservation, Oceanário de Lisboa
- Christina Hvilsom, Ph.D., Chair, EAZA Biobank, and Geneticist, Copenhagen Zoo
- Brian Zimmerman, Director of Conservation and Science, Bristol Zoological Society, and Chair of the Freshwater Teleost Taxon Advisory Group
- Moderator: Sandy Trautwein, Ph.D., Director of Aquatic Conservation, Species360
