Taking advantage of ConGen's expertise in population biology, the department provides support and advice for population management of endangered species translocation and reintroduction efforts. Research on viability analysis and statistically significant monitoring of wild populations is a component of this program. Recent examples of this research include the development of plans for captive breeding and reintroduction of the Chinese alligator and a new program for scarlet macaws in Guatemala.
