In-situ conservation is done by conserving the species in their natural habitats. It is the best way of biodiversity conservation. The reason is that it maintains recovering populations of the organisms in the surroundings where they have developed. Examples include sacred groves, national parks, biosphere reserves, sanctuaries, etc. Whereas, Zoos are an example of ex-situ conservation.
So, the correct answer is 'Zoological Parks'.
