DZP Gets Full BIAZA Membership

Head Keeper Mike Downman gives the
good news to the Meerkats
We are pleased to announce that as of 16th November DZP is now a full member of the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums (BIAZA).

Right from the very start, achieving full BIAZA membership has been a crucial goal in the long journey towards establishing Dartmoor Zoological Park as a fully functional member of the wider zoological community.

Following three years of provisional membership status, we are thrilled to have achieved our goal of full membership.

Full BIAZA membership is recognition that we: 
  • inspire people to help conserve the natural world 
  • participate in effective, co-operative conservation programmes 
  • deliver the highest quality environmental education, training and research 
  • achieve the highest standards of animal care and welfare 
Over the last three years we have benefited greatly from the support of BIAZA and other established members. In particular, our good friends at Newquay Zoo have always been on hand to offer help, guidance and advice. We are extremely grateful for their generous support and friendship.
