The IUCN has classified each of these species into one of three conservation statuses: vulnerable VU, endangered EN, and critically endangered CR. This multi-disciplinary approach to conservation of endangered species in captivity is organized taxonomically and by scientific discipline.

The seven taxonomic groups included are invertebrates; fish, reptiles and amphibians, birds, marine mammals, primates, and other mammals. Within each taxonomic group, four scientific disciplines are explored: conservation, reproductive physiology 3/5(1). Inthe Service announced the results of an unprecedented year-study, published in PLOS ONE, on amphibian abnormalities on national wildlife Service found that on average, less than 2 percent of frogs and toads sampled on National Wildlife Refuges had physical abnormalities involving the skeleton and eyes—a lower rate than experts feared based on earlier reports.
