THE DISNEY CONSERVATION FUND - Zoo Conservation Outreach Group Giant Anteater Conservation Program - The Zoo Conservation Outreach Group (ZCOG) leveraged funding from a 2018 Disney grant to build a coalition of Association of Zoos & Aquariums (AZA)-accredited donor facilities and provide the Brazil-based Anteaters & Highways research team with the resources they needed to quantify and evaluate the impact of roadway mortality on giant anteater populations in Mato Grosso do Sul, a state in southwestern Brazil. Thanks to this support, the Anteaters & Highways team has been able to apply GPS satellite tracking technologies to study the movement behavior of over fifty giant anteaters; monitor over fifty thousand miles of highwaysto help develop anteater mortality mitigation measures; and provide training opportunities for Brazilian university students and young people pursuing a career in science. Disneys trust in ZCOG and the Anteaters & Highways project has instilled hope in those battling to protect giant anteaters and the communities in Brazil that will ultimately be responsible for their conservation.Daniel Hilliard, Ph.D.Executive Director, Zoo Conservation Outreach Groupopposite:A giant anteater emerges from its high grass cover in the Brazilian Cerrado.
