Ecological Services Assistant Regional Directors (ARD) and staff from the Washington office had the opportunity to meet with the San Diego Zoo and the Institute for Conservation Research (ICR) on April 18, 2012.

They were treated to a behind the scenes look at the ICR programs addressing global endangered species recovery. While viewing polar bears, elephants, pandas and giraffes, the ARDs had opportunity to discuss these and other species' conservation with ICR researchers and animal keepers.

The Zoo and ICR are significant conservation partners with the Service for their work on international species and their research and recovery projects on southern California's threatened and endangered species such as California condor, light-footed clapper rail, California least tern, western snowy plover, Pacific pocket mouse, San Clemente Island shrike, and California red-legged frog.

A few members of the San Diego NWR Complex staff also were able to participate in the Zoo tour, and were happy to be updated with the impressive work being done with their partners in conservation.
