Together the zoos participate in more than 25 European Endangered Species Programmes (EEP) and 20 European Studbooks (ESB). European Studbooks maintained by Zodiac Zoos include the black crowned crane (Balearica pavonina) and the black-eared marmoset (Callithrix penicillata).
The Nyabarongo River Wetlands is an unprotected area surrounding the course of the Nyabarongo, and covering . It is of great importance for biodiversity conservation, especially birds, with species such as the endangered Malagasy pond heron ("Ardeora idae"), the near-threatened papyrus gonolek ("Laniarius mufumbiri"), the vulnerable grey crowned crane ("Balearica regulorum"), and the sitatunga ("Tragelaphus spekii").
The delta is home to birds in large numbers including hundreds of thousands of wintering garganeys, pintails and ruffs and breeding colonies of cormorant, heron, spoonbill, ibis and other waterbirds including the endangered West African subspecies of black crowned crane ("Balearica pavonina pavonina"). Most large mammals have been removed from the area by the human population. Mammals remaining include the African manatee, known as the "sea cow" which lives in the rivers and feeds on underwater plants. And the rivers are rich in fish including two endemics; the Mochokidae catfish "Synodontis gobroni" and a cichlid, "Gobiocichla wonderi".
Some the prominent bird species reported by the website of University of Michigan Museum of Zoology are; common swift ("Apus apus"), kori bustard ("Ardeotis kori"), grey crowned crane ("Balearica regulorum"), pied kingfisher ("Ceryle rudis"), great spotted cuckoo ("Clamator glandarius"), South African galago ("Galago moholi"), Nycteris grandis, martial eagle ("Polemaetus bellicosus"), yellow-fronted canary ("Serinus mozambicus"), "Swynnertonia swynnertoni" and black-rumped buttonquail ("Turnix nanus"). One-third of the world’s eagle species are reported from the Matobo National Park. Buff-spotted flufftail and stripe-cheeked bulbuls are seen across the country. The bateleur eagle is the only member of the genus "Terathopius" and probably the origin of the "Zimbabwe Bird", the national emblem of Zimbabwe.

Mary Rothes Margaret Cecil, 2nd Baroness Amherst of Hackney, ("née" Mary Rothes Margaret Tyssen-Amherst; 25 April 1857 – 21 December 1919) was a British hereditary peer, charity worker, amateur archaeologist and ornithologist. Thirty-two of the Tombs of the Nobles at Aswan were uncovered in her excavations and for many years were known as the "Cecil Tombs". She was one of the few English women to have held a peerage in her own right. The black crowned crane, "balearica pavonia ceciliae" was named in her honour.

Birds also include puff adder and mamba.
The grey crowned crane ("Balearica regulorum") is a bird in the crane family Gruidae. It occurs in dry savannah in Africa south of the Sahara, although it nests in somewhat wetter habitats. They can also be found in marshes, cultivated lands and grassy flatlands near rivers and lakes in Uganda and Kenya and as far south as South Africa. This animal does not migrate due to the perfect climate it inhabits. There are two subspecies. The East African "B. r. gibbericeps" (crested crane) occurs in the east of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and in Uganda, of which it is the national bird represented in its national flag, and Kenya to eastern South Africa. It has a larger area of bare red facial skin above the white patch than the smaller nominate species, "B. r. regulorum" (South African crowned crane), which breeds from Angola south to South Africa.
The number of avifaunal species reported is 528 to 530. Threatened species of birds with the IUCN designations of Least Concern (LC), Near-threatened (NT), Vulnerable (VU) or Endangered (EN) are: North African ostrich ("Struthio camelus camelus", LC); ferruginous duck ("Aythya nyroca", NT); lesser flamingo ("Phoenicopterus minor", NT); white-backed vulture ("Gyps africanus", NT); Rueppell's griffon ("Gyps rueppellii", NT); pallid harrier ("Circus macrourus", NT); red kite ("Milvus milvus", NT); Stanley bustard ("Neotis denhami", NT); Nubian bustard ("Neotis nuba", NT); corn crake ("Crex crex", NT); black crowned crane ("Balearica pavonina", NT); Eurasian curlew ("Numenius arquata", NT); black-tailed godwit ("Limosa limosa", NT); great snipe ("Gallinago media", NT); African skimmer ("Rynchops flavirostris", NT); European roller ("Coracias garrulus", NT); red-footed falcon ("Falco vespertinus", NT); sooty falcon ("Falco concolor", NT); white-headed vulture ("Trigonoceps occipitalis", VU); Beaudouin's snake-eagle ("Circaetus beaudouini", VU); lesser kestrel ("Falco naumanni", VU); and Egyptian vulture ("Neophron percnopterus", EN).
There are many floating islands in the lake. It is home to a wide variety of wildlife, including elephants, hippopotamus, crocodile (all in decline), and large communities of migrating birds including wintering ducks, ruff ("Philomachus pugnax") and other waterfowl and shore birds. There are two near-endemic birds in the region, the river prinia ("Prinia fluviatilis") and the rusty lark ("Mirafra rufa"). The shrinking of the lake is threatening nesting sites of the black-crowned crane ("Balearica pavonina pavonina"). During the wet season, fish move into the mineral-rich lake to breed and find food. Carnivorans such as the Central African cheetah ("Acinonyx jubatus soemmeringii"), the striped hyena ("Hyaena hyaena") and the caracal ("Felis caracal") used to live at the lake.
Liuwa plain supports globally important populations of storks, cranes and other water birds. The vulnerable crowned crane ("Balearica regulorum") and wattled crane ("Grus carunculatus") are abundant, sometimes forming flocks numbering several hundred. Wattled cranes are the most wetland dependent of Africa's cranes and are therefore considered an excellent flagship species for wetland conservation. Globally, Liuwa is considered to be the fourth most important breeding site for wattled cranes. The arrival of the annual floods marks the arrival of a wealth of water birds and the spectacle of massive migrating flocks is not uncommon in Liuwa. These water birds include the vulnerable slaty egret ("Egretta vinaceigula") and the whiskered tern ("Chlidonias hybrida") for which Liuwa provides the only breeding area in Zambia.
The avifauna reported in the extensive habitat of the lacustrine lake, which forms one of the major Sahelian wetlands, is under paleo-arctic and afro-tropical categories. The large congregation of wetland birds in the lake is documented at more than 1 million; this number is accounted by a large number of migratory and resident species of sand martin ("Riparia riparia") and yellow wagtail ("Motacilla flava"), cormorants including African cormorant ("Microcarbo africanus"), glossy ibis ("Plegadis falcinellus"), spoonbill, great white egrets ("Egretta alba"), purple heron ("Ardea purpurea"), water birds like the ferruginous duck ("Aythya nyroca"), white-winged tern ("Chlidonias leucopterus"), ruff ("Philomachus pugnax") and black-tailed godwit ("Limosa limosa"). However, the number of Afrotropical species such as the rare black-crowned crane ("Balearica pavonina") are dwindling. A sea side feeling is felt around the lake and the delta, as the air is filled with shrill cries of water birds and sea gulls.
Returning home, Lady William Cecil published her findings "Report on the Work Done at Aswan" in the "Annales du Service des antiquités de l'Egypte" in 1903. In December, 1903, Lord and Lady William Cecil attended Princess Henry of Battenburg to return to Egypt, having been members of her household for many years. Her second season was not as productive and her work was overshadowed by a discovery made on Elephantine Island of a papyrus engagement contract. The document, in Aramaic script, contained important descriptions of the fortress and city of Aswan in the era of Artaxerxes I and Darius II and Lady William worked diligently with Howard Carter and others to try to get it published. In 1904, she published "Bird Notes from the Nile", which she offered for sale to benefit the parish church of St. Mary's in Scarborough, North Yorkshire. The book inspired the black crowned crane, "balearica pavonia ceciliae" to be named in her honor. Other charitable works Lady William supported included the Children's Invalid Aid Fund; London's Queen's Hospital for Children, for which she was one of only two women directors; and the ambulance and hospital works of the Order of Saint John of Jerusalem, for which she also served as a Lady Justice. Lady William and her husband spent the next several years traveling, visiting Australia in 1905.
