The Which Fish? Campaign
Oceans cover approximately 70% of the volume of our planet and provide resources to millions of people. Human activities such as overfishing, destructive fishing practices and marine pollution are the main threats for the oceans to continue providing ecosystem services and essential food resources.
Fish and aquatic invertebrates are essential for human consumption and to sustain coastal populations by providing their income. There is a general consensus of the need to conserve and properly manage fish stocks to avoid massive unintentional losses.
This Campaign addresses how commercially-based human activities impact marine species conservation. It focuses on how zoos and aquariums work and will encourage participants to make real changes to their working practices by applying the already shared vision to united objectives for marine biodiversity management and protection.
The campaign is developed along three different axes:
1) Human sustainable consumption 2) Sustainable animal feed 3) Collection planning for sustainable aquatic species

EAZA Silent Forest Campaign
Songbirds in Asia are threatened with extinction due to excessive and strongly cultural rooted consumption of wild songbirds for trade, songbird competitions, pets, export, traditional medicine and food. This campaign aims to save a growing number of songbirds by increasing knowledge, awareness and commitment to do action within and beyond the zoo community.

Let it Grow
Let it Grow is a joint campaign by three of Europe’s largest science engagement associations – the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA), the European network of science centres and museums (Ecsite) and the Botanic Gardens Conservation International (BGCI). Together we aim to help make our communities into havens for native species of animals, plants and all other forms of life – working ecosystems that will help protect our continent from biodiversity loss and invasive alien species.
