AAZK Resource Committee (ARC)

Mission

To provide AAZK chapters, members, and institutions with the tools necessary for elevating the animal keeping profession and the zooquaria field as a whole.

Vision

The AAZK Resource Committee will research, identify, and assemble the necessary tools to establish AAZK members as leaders in the zoological field.

Purpose

The AAZK Resource Committee creates, maintains, and distributes a living database of resources for chapters, members, and institutions that explore frequently asked questions and emerging issues in animal care. ARC will promote the work of animal care professionals and institutions year-round, through publications and social media venues. ARC will also guide AAZK chapters, highlight keepers’ contributions to conservation, and further the zoo keeping field by creating original content, graphics, and resources reflective of the needs of the membership and professional community.
