AAZK Resource Committee (ARC)


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


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


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 also guide AAZK chapters and further the zoo keeping field by creating original content, graphics, and resources reflective of the needs of the membership and professional community.
