Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens in Sanford has announced it won an award at the Association of Zoos & Aquariums (AZA) Virtual Annual Conference.
The award was for the Urban Wildlife Information Network, a partnership in which the Zoo is involved. The network is an alliance of scientists at zoos, universities and other entities, including eight AZA members, started by the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago.
The project aims to collect the broader data needed to further understand the ways that animals and humans interact across regions and around the globe.
The AZA is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the advancement of zoos and aquariums. It represents more than 230 facilities in the U.S. and overseas.
“Education and furthering the zoological field are at the heart of our mission,” said Stephanie Williams, the Zoo’s director. “To be acknowledged for that work, especially by the AZA, is an incredible honor.”
The Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens is home to over 350 animals, and is a leader in conservation. More information is available at CentralFloridaZoo.org.
