Major threats to wildlife include habitat ion/fragmentation, overexploitation, poaching, pollution and climate change. The IUCN estimates that 27,000 species of the ones assessed are at risk for extinction. Expanding to all existing species, a 2019 UN report on biodiversity put this estimate even higher at a million species.

The American Species Survival Plan or SSP program was developed in 1981 by the (American) Association of Zoos and Aquariums to help ensure the survival of selected species in zoos and aquariums.
The American Species Survival Plan or SSP program was developed in 1981 by the (American) Association of Zoos and Aquariums to help ensure the survival of selected species in zoos and aquariums, most of which are threatened or endangered in the wild. SSP programs focus on animals that are in danger of extinction in the wild, when zoo conservationists believe captive breeding programs may be their only chance to survive.
Wildlife Conservation. Ensure the world’s most iconic species, including tigers, rhinos, and elephants, are secured and recovering in the wild. WWF’s community-based conservation work today reflects this fundamental reality.
Survival analysis estimates of average life expectancy for Asian elephants are 4. years in Europe and 4. years in North America
Survival analysis estimates of average life expectancy for Asian elephants are 4. years in North America. Survival analysis estimates for African elephants are less robust due to less data. Currently the African elephant average life expectancy estimate in North America is 3. years, but this is likely to increase with more data, as it has over the past 10 years.

The Wildlife Conservation Center, Arrington, Virginia The Plan was unveiled by the Cabinet Secretary for Tourism & Wildlife, Ho. The strategy will leverage on-going local and international efforts to prevent extinction of this iconic species.
The Wildlife Conservation Center, Arrington, Virginia. The Plan was unveiled by the Cabinet Secretary for Tourism & Wildlife, Hon. Najib Balala at the Mount Kenya Wildlife Conservancy in Nanyuki, Laikipia County today. In 2010, KWS brought together all the Mountain Bongo conservation players, both local and international, and assembled at Green Hills Hotel, Nyeri.
Wildlife Conservation is the practice of protecting wild plant and animal species and their habitats. Wildlife plays an important role in balancing the environment and provides stability to different natural processes of nature. Fewer natural wildlife habitat areas remain each year. Moreover, the habitat that remains has often been degraded to bear little resemblance to the wild areas which existed in the past. Habitat loss due to destruction, fragmentation and degradation of habitat is the primary threat to the survival of wildlife. Climate change: Global warming is making hot days hotter, rainfall and flooding heavier, hurricanes stronger and droughts more severe.
Using wildlife habitat models in conservation planning is of considerable interest to wildlife biologists. Use of simulation models represents the single best alternative. However, it is imperative that these techniques be described in a single source. Moreover, biologists should be made aware of alternative modeling techniques. It is also important that practical guidance be provided to biologists along with a demonstration of utility of these procedures.
Wildlife conservation is a practice in which people attempt to protect endangered plant and animal species, along with their habitats. A number of different disciplines are involved in wildlife conservation. The goal is to ensure that nature will be around for future generations to enjoy, and to recognize the importance of wildlife and wilderness lands to humans. Many nations have government agencies dedicated to this practice, and they can help to implement policies designed to protect wildlife.
