Conservation and WLT support
Since 2006 BIAZA has been working with World Land Trust (WLT) to support in-situ conservation projects. BIAZA financially supported the purchase of the BIAZA Reserve in Brazil and has funded rangers at the BIAZA Reserve and in reserves in Armenia, Mexico and Borneo through BIAZA Keepers of the Wild.
BIAZA is currently raising funds for land purchase in Argentina through BIAZA Buy an Acre following a successful campaign to raise funds for land purchase in Mexico in 2014.
As well as making financial contributions, BIAZA promotes the conservation projects to members via news stories in the BIAZA member magazine and email updates.
BIAZA (the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums) is the professional body representing the best zoos and aquariums in Britain and Ireland.
More than 100 zoo and aquariums are members of BIAZA. These members pride themselves on their excellent animal welfare, education and conservation work.
BIAZA leads and supports its members and helps promote the work of good zoos and aquariums.
