As of October 2016 EAZA has 295 Full Members, 7 Temporary Members, 19 Candidates for Membership, 36 Corporate Members and 34 Associate Members (including three reciprocal members, ALPZA, AZA and Species360). With over 370 member institutions in 44 countries throughout Europe and the Middle East, which employ or work with the continent’s leading educators, researchers and conservationists in the natural sciences, EAZA represents the cutting edge of a new philosophy: The idea that communities must take charge of their own natural future.
By ensuring that its member zoos and aquariums achieve and maintain the highest standards of care and breeding for the species they keep, EAZA empowers European citizens to learn about and contribute to global biodiversity conservation goals. It is estimated that more than 140 million people visit EAZA members each year, equivalent to approximately one in five European citizens.
