The importance of accreditation

Seeing animals up close can be a wonderful experience.

Different animals can be found in so many different facilities worldwide. However it's important to know and acknowledge that not all zoos and aquariums, as well as sanctuaries, rescue and wildlife centres are equal.

How do you know whether the zoo, aquarium, sanctuary, rescue or wildlife centre you visit is a good place for animals? How do you know whether the facility engages in other missions of modern professional facilities today, being conservation, education, research and engagement?

You can check whether a facility is accredited by a national or regional zoo and aquarium association, or sanctuary association. Leading zoo and aquarium associations, as well as sanctuary, rescue and wildlife centre associations have developed and implemented comprehensive accreditation programmes.

Accredited facilities are committed to caring for animals and safeguarding species from extinction. They engage millions through accredited conservation and education programmes. We invite you to see if a facility is accredited, and to encourage your friends and family to do the same.
