Zoos are already engaged in changing both their missions and their messages as we near the end of the twentieth century, and it is almost certain that zoos and their employees will have more and more responsibilities offered them, even thrust upon them, as human expansion rolls unchecked into the next century.

We will lead by our examples, and communities will support these efforts with increasing pride of ownership and participation. If we continue along this path, our achievements will be praiseworthy indeed. I would project the following six items as achievable outcomes early in the next century: 1. Collectively, zoos and aquariums will be the most active, well-funded, and effective conservation organizations in the world. 2. Zoos and aquariums will be routinely allied with research and teaching institutions throughout the world, providing a multitude of opportunities to advance basic and applied zoo biology.
