Animal Population Management Committee

Animal Population Management Committee Mission

The Animal Population Management (APM) Committee, formerly the Wildlife Conservation and Management Committee (WCMC), supports the development, promotion, evaluation, and management of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums' cooperative Animal Programs, including 46 Taxon Advisory Groups (TAGs) and more than 450 Species Survival Plan® Programs (SSPs). The APM Committee ensures superior animal care, management, and sustainability within AZA's Animal Programs, and collaborates with other AZA Committees and global zoological associations to achieve these goals.
