THE ASSOCIATION OF MINORITY ZOO

& AQUARIUM PROFESSIONALS

Mission Statement:

The Association of Minority Zoo & Aquarium Professionals (AMZAP) exists as a network of professionals currently working in exotic animal care and conservation disciplines focused on increasing minority representation throughout the zoo industry. We strive to build relationships amongst minorities presently in the field and to increase minority representation in all disciplines and at all levels in zoos, aquariums and exotic wildlife facilities. We do this by offering outreach, mentoring and professional development resources to people of diverse ethnic and racial heritages interested in this career path.

"A diverse mix of voices leads to better discussions, decisions, and outcomes for everyone."
