Annual Report on Conservation and Science

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. 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.

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