Wildlife Safari is working to preserve and protect the incredible species in our collection domestically and internationally.
The Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) provides accreditation to only the top 10% of licensed USDA exhibitors in the nation that meet their high standards for safety and animal care.
The Species Survival Plan (SSP) is a major part of being an AZA member which works to cooperatively manage the breeding and care of various threatened or endangered species populations throughout AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums, certified related facilities, and approved non-member participants. Each of the 500+ SSP programs is managed by their corresponding Taxon Advisory Group(s) (TAG) with the purpose of examining and recommending action plans pertaining to the management and conservation of individual populations of endangered species. Wildlife Safari actively participates in many of these Taxon Advisory Groups.
Being an AZA member ensures that our exhibits, animal care and breeding programs are the best they can be for the species at Wildlife Safari. The SSP helps us collaborate with other facilities, transferring individuals and sharing our knowledge regarding animal care and breeding. Participating in the various TAGs certifies the future survival of the individuals under our protection as well as their cousins in the wild.

survival of many species, our labors do not stop there. Recently we have
partnered ourselves with two international conservation organizations
