Animal Welfare

Our first concern is the welfare of the animals in the care of our member institutions. Our zoos and aquariums are recognized the world over for their approach to animal care, and their professional conduct standards have also been incorporated into legislation and regulations of many Canadian municipalities and provinces.

To become and remain a CAZA member, zoos and aquariums must commit to upholding a rigorous Code of Professional Ethics and respect policies concerning the care, welfare and use of their animal collections, including our latest on the Use of Animals in Educational Programming.
