The goal of the Penguin TAG
is to provide leadership for the management of penguins in captivity
in order to maintain healthy, sustainable populations for the
Penguin Taxon Advisory Group?
Engendering appreciation for these
species that are indicators of the health of
marine and coastal environments;
Promoting conservation concern and
conservation action through education programs;
Furthering research in support of both
captive management and in situ conservation.
The TAG will accomplish this by providing
guidance in the selection of species, acquisition of animals,
exhibit and facility design, captive management, and by participating
in field conservation projects.
