About Us

The European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA) is the largest regional professional zoo and aquarium association. It represents and links over 400 zoos, aquariums and associated organisations throughout Europe and the Middle East. For species conservation, EAZA promotes the holistic ‘One Plan Approach’ to its Members. This recognises that the many species thriving in EAZA zoos and aquariums, alongside the unique skills and knowledge held by EAZA Members, are vital parts of the collaborative efforts of the conservation community to save species.
