Our mission statement is to continually establish and maintain
facilities to enable us to pioneer techniques for the propagation of
specialized species, promote conservation of their habitat through
presentation of educational programs, maintain a gene pool and
breeding data bank of specialized species, and reintroduce progeny to
their natural habitat wherever applicable.
