Species Survival Plan

SSP

Look for this symbol on signs in the Zoo.

Alexandria Zoo and other AZA zoos and aquariums across North America work together to manage specific threatened or endangered species.

Each Species Survival Plan (SSP) manages a species in order to maintain a healthy and self-sustaining population.

SSPs also participate in conservation activities such as research, public education, reintroduction and field projects.
