2014_aza_logoThe Binghamton Zoo at Ross Park is proud to be accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA).

Be sure to look for the AZA logo whenever you visit a zoo or aquarium’s web site, advertisements, and at the gate. Fewer than 10% of the approximately 2,400 animal exhibitors licensed by the United States Department of Agriculture are AZA accredited! When you see this logo, you will be sure to know that the zoo has met the high standards set by AZA. As an accredited institution, the Binghamton Zoo at Ross Park has met rigorous, professional standards for animal management, veterinary care, wildlife conservation and research, education, safety, staffing, and a lot more.

AZA zoos and aquariums represent the finest institutions, and its members are leaders in global conservation. Looking for the AZA accreditation seal is a simple way of knowing you’re not just being entertained, but you’re patronizing a facility where high quality animal care is paramount.
