Leadership in Captive Management



What are the goals of the
Penguin Taxon Advisory Group?

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 purposes of:

• Engendering appreciation for these charismatic
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.
