Provisional Membership

Provisional Membership

This category is for zoos and aquariums who have applied for full membership but fall just short of reaching the standards needed to become a Full Member. When this happens they are assigned a mentor who supports them to reach full membership and are given a maximum period of three years to achieve this.

Mentors will regularly visit the collection and use the BIAZA Mentor Form to report back to BIAZA's Membership & Licensing Committee who will then make a recommendation to Council.
