¿Qué impacto pueden los zoos y acuarios tener sobre la conservación?

En 2008 se identificó que los zoológicos a nivel mundial son visitados cada año por 9% de los habitantes del planeta e invirtieron aprox. 200 billones de dólares en conservación In-situ (posicionandose como la 3era comunidad que mayores aportes genera en esta área). Adicionalmente la mayoría de los zoos y acuarios se ubican en centros urbanos donde las oportunidades de tener contacto con la naturaleza son limitadas, en ese sentido una visita a estos centros son la única opción para conectar con la biodiversidad.
