dc.description.abstractThis thesis outlines the differences between an unaccredited and accredited zoo, and introduces the two main accreditation organizations here in the United States, Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) and Zoological Association of America (ZAA). It covers both costs and benefits associated with becoming accredited as well as outlining the process it takes to become accredited, along with some issues that some zoos have about accreditation.
