The Rhinoceroses – The Battle for its Survival Continues
The protection of many animals is nearly impossible today without zoos. One example here is the rhinoceros, whose population is diminishing massively worldwide. For this reason, the Academy together with the IZW Leibniz Institut für Zoo- und Wildtierforschung Berlin (Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research Berlin) has been committed to a special species protection and conservation breeding project at Salzburg Zoo.

The project "Condor" in Bolivia
It stands for courage, foresight, strength, pride and love of freedom: the condor. That is why this bird - like the eagle in Europe - plays a very special role in the self-image of the Andean states. The Academy has initiated a unique project at the La Paz Zoo to protect the "King of the Air" of South America, who is under great threat of extinction.
