|• Insurance population
The EAZA population will be managed towards an insurance population as this is the only South American deer species held within EAZA and there is good potential to bring in new founders.
The EAZA population is recommended to be part of South American-themed exhibits.
The EAZA population will function to educate visitors of EAZA Member institutions about the biology of this small deer with the smallest antlers.
In April 2021, the Southern pudu EEP had 53 animals in 21 institutions.
