From the Zoo to You: A Community Accreditation Celebration!
We’re feeling pretty festive here at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo since receiving the distinction of accreditation by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) through 2015. The Zoo underwent a detailed application process and rigorous on-site inspection by a team of trained professionals this past summer to ensure it meets animal care, veterinary program, conservation, education, and safety standards. We passed with flying colors! Fewer than 10% of the approximately 2,400 animal exhibitors licensed by the United States Department of Agriculture are AZA accredited.
“Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is one of the best in the world because it has met the highest standards in the world,” said AZA President and CEO Jim Maddy. “It takes hard work and dedication to meet Association of Zoos and Aquariums accreditation standards.”
News like this is cause for celebration! Because the Zoo doesn’t receive any tax support to operate, we rely on donations, membership dues, and admissions for funding. You are the ones that make Cheyenne Mountain Zoo so unique, so we planned a special From the Zoo to You Community Accreditation Celebration to say thank you!
