In order to meet the modern day requirements and particularly the WAZA 2023 Animal Welfare goal, PAAZA is Evolving.

This is being achieved by the amalgamation of the old Accreditation (voluntary) and Operational Standard (mandatory) to the new Operational Accreditation which is mandatory for ALL Members and was ratified at the 29th PAAZA AGM.

The core of the new Operational Accreditation is Animal Welfare (note: care is not welfare - it is an integral part of Welfare) and strives to meet the WAZA requirements for Regional Association members.

ALL PAAZA members whether previously Accredited or Operationally compliant, will be required to undergo the Operational Accreditation process. Given the 'New Normal', PAAZA had to rethink the audit process in order to offer this service to the 'Wildlife in a Controlled Environment' profession and has done this by going virtual with audit assessments. 

PAAZA only has ONE 'Member' category which is defined as: Operationally Compliant (will have passed the Operational Accreditation process) and is current with membership fees. Below is a list of Current Compliant (those who were either Accredited or  passed Operational Standard) Members. All other valued PAAZA supporters are classified as various 'Partners'.
