The World Owl Trust is a member of EAZA

European zoos went beyond political barriers in 1988 by joining forces to establish the multinational “European Community Association of Zoos and Aquaria”. This organisation became a truly pan-European association when the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA) was formed in 1992 after the fall of the Iron Curtain, which had divided Europe for so many years.

Association membership has increased from 79 zoos and aquaria at the end of 1988 to more than 250 in 34 countries today. Some EAZA members are found in countries bordering Europe, including Israel, Turkey, Kazakhstan, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates. EAZA is now the worlds’ largest zoo and aquarium organisation.

EAZA represents and links European zoos and aquaria in order to maintain or increase the standards of these institutions. Members are dedicated to providing their visitors with rewarding experiences and their animals with optimal care. EAZA zoos and aquaria play a vital role in conservation by promoting an increase in public and political awareness of the necessity for conservation and by actively participating in the European Endangered Species Programmes (EEPs).

Following a rigorous, all-encompassing inspection of the World Owl Trust in February, we are very pleased to report the good news that we have been accepted into EAZA as full members.
