The Museum is active in conservation by raising public awareness issues and by participating in international captive breeding programmes for endangered species. The Vivarium includes naturalistic exhibits with live reptiles and amphibians on display, but is also particularly notable for the rare tropical frogs it maintains behind the scenes. Many of the frogs maintained are of key importance to captive breeding programmes that have been established to help save a number of species on the very brink of extinction.
