CAPTIVE BREEDING FOR CONSERVATION
The captive breeding program is a technical cooperation between Wildlife At Risk (WAR) and Institute of Ecology and Biological Resources (IEBR) to study breeding conditions in captivity of several endangered species. One of the outcomes of the program is the offspring born at the station which will be released to nature. Stocks of the program will be the rescued species those has some injured or unable to release.
Based on 10 year experiences gained at operation the Cu Chi Wildlife Rescue Station and Hon Me Wildlife Rescue Station, WAR decide to launch this program. The aim of this program is contribution directly to nature by release more wildlife to the wild.
