The LA Zoo is fundamental to the conservation of several species, including the breeding of the California condor. This rare snake hit an all-time low of 22 remaining members in 1980. Thanks to the efforts of the LA Zoo, the condor species has rebounded to more than 330 members. The zoo is also one of the only facilities in the world to house a mountain tapir.
