Our Activities

BIAZA leads and supports its members and their work, through networking and liaison.  The BIAZA office is a central place for queries from members and the public, particularly with regard to providing contacts and advice on all issues related to zoos and aquariums.

The main channels of communication are publicationsmeetings and the website.  Publications are regularly produced to communicate with the membership, other organizations and the wider world. BIAZA holds a number of meetings a year to bring members together to share new ideas and best practice. BIAZA also organizes other events and training, responding to the needs of the membership.  

Promoting the work of our member zoos and aquariums is another important aspect of what we do and we work closely with the government and the media to not only ensure that our members have the highest standards, but that the public are aware of the important role they play in conservation, education and research.
