The AFZ concentrates on conservation and recovery of native species, but we also provide a facility to capture and cryogenically preserve living cells and genetic material of rare and exotic animals on behalf of Australian Zoos, conservation organizations and universities; domesticated species used for specialized medical or veterinary research; and of commercially valuable aquatic and terrestrial animal stocks on behalf of industry and government departments for biosecurity, future research and breeding programs.
The AFZ can provide advice and assist with:
Animal reproductive health
Fertility assessment including semen analysis
Cryostorage including sample collection, cryomedia design and freezing protocols
In vitro cell culture
