inter situ

In between ex situ (offsite and fending for itself) and in situ (in wild habitat), the inter situ conservation collection has diverse genetic representation and supplemental care. The term was first used to refer to the restoration of declining species in areas that are outside their current range but within historical ranges, inferred from paleoecological studies, but is now used to describe a semi-wild setting for ensuring species’ survival.
