Abstract

Programs for the captive breeding, introduction, reintroduction, or translocation of an animal can involve a chain of events including capture, captivity, propagation, movement, veterinary diagnosis and treatment, and scientific procedures. All such activities may be subject to legislation that may be applied at international, national, regional, or local levels. It can relate inter alia to conservation, animal health, welfare and research, administration, and to human safety. The diversity of the relevant law necessitates the planning and management of programs to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements in the course of achieving scientific objectives.
