The EAZA population will help fundraise to support ex situ conservation activities for Balabac chevrotains [by Katala Foundation in the Philippines] and/or [Silver-backed chevrotain (in situ research)].
Use this population to maintain and develop husbandry further for lesser chevrotains, also for supporting the Balabac chevrotain population.
The EAZA population can be used to educate about evolutionary distinctiveness and showcase the smallest deer species.
In February 2023, the Lesser chevrotain EEP had 47 animals in 69 institutions.
