We're the Builders and Thinkers that help zoos and aquariums run.
From the drawing board to the last coat of paint and beyond, we work to build better zoo and aquarium habitats for animals, and unique visiting experiences for people. And we do all that while maintaining sustainable practices.
Our members are architects, engineers, management personnel, tradesmen, animal keepers, grounds and housekeeping staff, and more. Though their professional paths may differ, our members all have a love of sharing their expertise, and learning from one another. The hope of AZFA is to build knowledge, grow our collective network, and push one another to continue to build the best habitats in the world.
