Each year AZA publishes an Annual Report on Conservation and Science (ARCS) to summarize the education programs, field conservation activities, green business practices, and scientific research of the AZA community. 

Resources for the ARCS Annual Updates

ARCS publications and all associated data are made possible by submissions from AZA members each year. All members are committed to participating each year. Learn more about the submission process here.


Annual Reports provide an overview of each member’s engagement in conservation, while Highlights celebrates the cumulative conservation activity of the AZA community and underscores what can be accomplished together. These publications are based on information submitted by AZA-accredited and certified related facilities each year. Older reports can be obtained by contacting the Conservation and Science team. 

Information about these efforts is also found in the publication of peer-reviewed papers, technical reports, book chapters, and graduate theses and dissertations.
