Our Structure

A major component of the work of the Association is related to the conservation, research and education role of zoos. This includes managing coordinated breeding programmes, providing support for habitat and species conservation in the wild and inspiring people about the wonder of nature and wildlife.
In order to achieve our mission, BIAZA enlists the help of a number of committees. Staff from any full member collection and associate members are entitled to sit on these committees providing their expertise to the office and therefore the organization.
Elected members of Council, under the steering of the Chairman, drive the direction of the organization using information provided by the committees. In this way, BIAZA is truly a membership driven organization.
