This article discussed how zoologists and other researchers gained knowledge and helped endangered species, through reintroduction, restoring the habitats and researching how the different species behave ogwith certain environments.
How I Used It:
I used this article to gain knowledge and background on ways Zoos and other nature reserves help the species regain their population. I never quoted this article in my essay. However, it was more to get a better understanding of the information so I can have stronger statements and reasons to back them up.
2. The Importance of National and International Zoos Cooperation
This article discuss how animals can be brought back to their natural habitats or kept in a sanctuary where they can be studied by breeding them until they become a self-sustaining population and then spreading out species for the population to grow. All of this may aid in the expansion of the species population and reduce the number of endangered species.
How I Used It:
This article helped me achieve a better understanding on how breeding can truly help a population gain their strength and increase their numbers. This article gave me background knowledge and a new perspective on how breeding can truly help endangered species.

Background: This article discussing what conversation translocation and reintroduction are and how they are used to level out the steep declining slope of endangered animals.
How I Used It:
I used the information that this article gave me to explain the different ways conversation translocation can be helpful to endangered species. I used their example on the experiment on the flightless birds and how it led to a national upbringing of conversation translocation.
4. Staff, A. (n.d.). .How Zoos and Aquariums Protect Endangered Species Association of Zoos & Aquariums. Retrieved March 6, 2023
This article discuss the different ways zoos and aquariums can provide safe and cared for homes for endangered species.
How I Used It:
I used this article by giving different reasonings on how Zoos and Aquariums provide safe enclosures for animals. They also gave me information on how zoos and aquariums are the best defense we have for saving the loss of species and actually help to decrease the number of different endangered species.
5. Croteau, E., & Mott, C. L. (2011). Saving Endangered Species: A Case Study Using Global Amphibian Declines | Learn Science at Scitable/ Nature.com.
Background: This article gave me tons of information about conservation translocation, reintroduction, captive breeding and public awareness for saving endangered species.
How I Used It:
This article helped all of my cases on preaching how zoos and aquariums can save different species from going extinct. I used a little bit of information from each section to either make a statement or back a statement up with their information. However, I used this article more for the information about public awareness and how the more the community knows about the species the more interested they are in helping.
6. Human-Wildlife Conflicts. (n.d.). Wildlife Translocation
Background: This article was solely on translocation and how it can help stable different populations and also give them a better and safer habtitat.
How I Used It: I used this article to prevail the importance of translocations. I also used this article to define what translocations are and how they are used in different situations. It also gave me reasons against translocations so I could use that information in my rebuttal.

Background: This article discussed the different ways conservation translocation are helpful when trying to prevent different species from going extinct.
How I Used It: I used this article to give me more information on how conversation translocation are useful. This article was used for more back up reasonings since other articles were stronger in reasonings.

(2011). Assessing the benefits and risks of translocations in changing environments: a genetic perspectiveEvolutionary Applications, 4(6), 709–725.
Background: This article provide me information on the benefits and risks of translocation and how it can changing the dynamic of the different populations.
How I used It: I used this article to show that there can be extreme risks when moving populations to new and different habitats because it can pit a lot of stress on animals which can hinder the growth of their population.
9. Naomiwentz. (2018, November 1). Captive Breeding Programs: Beneficial or Harmful? Conservation BiologyNews.
Background: This article discussed the ways on how captive breeding could actually be more harmful than beneficial when trying to save endangered species.
How I Used It: I used this article to show that captive breeding is actually very risking when trying to grow a population. There can be inbreeding and genetic disorders. There as to be a genetic variation to keep the population growing, and captive breeding my hinder that from happening.
10. Williamson, B. (2020, October 15). Keeping Wild Animals in Captivity Is Not Conservation. Here’s Why.
Background: This article discuss that holding animals in captivity is actually harming then instead of doing them good.
How I Used It: I used this article to show that captivity is bad for the animals because they become used to being taken care of and so if they ever go back into the wild they aren’t going to be able to fend for themselves.
