BIAZA's Top Ten List of Reptiles and Amphibians Benefitting from the Help of Zoos

TV presenter and naturalist, Nick Baker is supporting the Top Ten campaign this year to raise awareness of these species and the work zoos are doing in their aid.  Nick says: “Zoos and aquariums have a very important role in this whole thing … at the scariest level they are the ark. They are where the insurance populations of these animals can be looked after and understood and studied. As much as BIAZA are very important in holding the ark population, they are also very important in being that interface between these animals and the public. The problem with these animals is also they are not furry; they do not have an instant appeal to the masses. As a consequence they can get forgotten. The reality is when the zoos show them to the world you are reaching people and spreading that word and getting people to appreciate what these animals are about. What the zoo is doing is taking that money (the pennies the people have spent to enter the zoo in the first place) and applying it directly to try and give these creatures a happy end.”
