Research support

Researchers who are interested in collecting data across a number of BIAZA members can apply for BIAZA support. Successful applicants will receive a signed letter of support encouraging member collections to assist with their work wherever possible. 

Zoos and aquariums are inundated with requests for assistance in a range of research projects. Staff time and resources are often very limited, so a BIAZA letter of research support will help collections identify those projects which will advance scientific knowledge in the relevant field, and will be of greatest value to the animals in their care and the wider zoo and aquarium community.
