San Antonio Zoo has received a national award for successfully breeding the psychedelic rock gecko. The species is very endangered.
Note: Cologne Zoo is another zoo that is greatly contributing to helping the species via intensive research. The zoo achieved a breakthrough in the photographic identification of the species, thus facilitating trade. It was also a major step towards establishing international breeding projects.
Important in situ work is also carried out in relation to the international conservation breeding.
This shows just how important modern zoos and aquariums are to the survival of this species.
