GREENWICH -

A panel of wildlife experts discussed vital conservation issues in Greenwich.

The discussion was held at the Bruce Museum in Greenwich to complement their summer exhibition, National Geographic Photo Ark.

The panel discussed several issues, including the impact of zoo breeding programs on endangered species and how individuals can make a difference in the fate of Connecticut's own endangered species.

Organizers say community engagement goes a long way in helping wildlife.

Gregg Dancho, director of the Beardsley Zoo, said, "This is what we want people to do, we want them to engage in what we do, understand what we do. If they have concerns we want to give them information. Education is our number one tool and to have a format like this, you can't beat it."
