The National Zoological Park's Conservation and Research Center, now the Conservation Biology Institute, is established on 3,100 acres at Front Royal, Virginia, to encourage development of all aspects of animal sciences. It trains wildlife biologists from developing countries, as well as breeds, houses, and conducts research on a wide range of endangered species.
