The American Association of Zoo Keepers (AAZK) is an international, non-profit organization with local chapters throughout the world comprised of dedicated animal care professionals and related persons interested in promoting animal keeping and animal care as a profession.
AAZK serves as a focal point of current information and techniques available to the professional zoo keeper. The field keeper is the frontline individual responsible for the daily care and feeding of animals. The role AAZK plays in today’s modern zoos and aquariums is educating the professional keeper and offering them a venue to exchange important information about their profession in the fields of animal husbandry, environmental enrichment, and reproductive success to name a few.
