Marine translocations research at the Calgary Zoo

This is the first global review of marine conservation translocations!

Well, what does that mean?

Threats to marine ecosystems are on the rise, and it’s vital that conservation organizations like the Calgary Zoo get involved with efforts to protect the variety of ocean life that is so crucial to our planet.

We are excited to share with you this recent news article by the IUCN, International Union for Conservation of Nature, which profiles our research on human-mediated movements (“translocations”) of marine species for conservation purposes. Led by our Centre for Conservation Research, this study is the first global review of marine conservation translocations – which is a comprehensive examination of the diversity, prevalence, and geographic distribution of conservation efforts that involve moving marine species to new and former habitats. Check out the article here!


As a conservation organization, we are not only dedicated to the recovery and protection of species in western Canada and abroad, but also to sharing our research and expertise with our peers who are tackling conservation problems around the world.
