Milwaukee County Zoo gets AZA accreditation

The Association of Zoos & Aquariums (AZA) announced today that the Milwaukee County Zoo has been granted accreditation by the AZA's independent Accreditation Commission.

To achieve this accreditation, the Milwaukee County Zoo went through a thorough review to ensure that it meets and will continue to meet rising standards concerning animal care, veterinary programs, conservation, education and safety.

This accreditation process must be completed every five years to retain membership. Top officials were also interviewed at a formal hearing of the AZA.

"By meeting Association of Zoos and Aquariums Accreditation Standards, the Milwaukee County Zoo sets itself apart as one of the top zoos in the world," said AZA President and CEO Jim Maddy.

"The Milwaukee County Zoo is a leader in the care and conservation of wildlife, and in educating people about the natural world."
