Free or Discounted Admissions
Members of AZA may use their AZA membership for free or discounted admissions to AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums . Not all institutions participate in this program, so be sure to check the list before you visit. It's always a good idea to call BEFORE you visit.
Exclusive to AZA member zoos, aquariums and related facilities: benefit from discounts on products and services through AZA Smart Source. Learn more about nationally-negotiated Purchasing Partner programs that can help lower operating costs and offer enhanced benefits not available individually. Whether your purchasing is managed centrally or individual employee are allowed to place orders, the Smart Source website offers an easy interface to vendors that support our industry.

Members are encouraged to become involved in these groups to share interests and learn from your peers. AZA listservs are reserved for members only and require an AZA Member Number to join.
