Our AZA Accreditation
The Zoo is proud to be accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), assuring excellent care for animals, a great experience for visitors and a better future for all living things. Fewer than 10% of the approximately 2,800 animal exhibitors licensed by the United States Department of Agriculture are AZA accredited. The AZA logo is the easiest, most reliable way for people to choose zoos and aquariums that meet rigorous accreditation standards. AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums undergo a thorough review that includes a detailed accreditation application as well as a multiple day on-site inspection by a team of experts from around the country.
