New Breeding Program For Endangered Species

The New York Times reported that the Audubon Nature Institute and San Diego Zoo Global plan to develop a new breeding program for rare and endangered species on 1,000 acres south of New Orléans. The site will emphasize allowing animals to roam freely in herds as they find some species breed better under these conditions. Plans include  bringing herds of antelope, okapi and Masai giraffe to roam and graze along the Mississippi River. This will be the largest U.S. breeding site based on allowing animals to roam freely.
