2] IN SITU VS. EX SITU CONSERVATION

 

The world is also shown to be divided into two vertical hemispheres, "in situ conservation activities" and "ex situ conservation activities". In situ refers to conservation within the animals' natural or undisturbed habitat, ex situ refers to animals being conserved or managed artificially outside of their natural habitats, e.g. Zoos and Wildlife Parks and Reserves. However, all the scientific and social actors are called upon to service both the in situ and ex situ activities.
