The Audubon Zoo Species Conservation and Management Scholarship is sponsored by the Audubon Zoo in New Orleans, LA and managed by Zoo Conservation Outreach Group (ZCOG). The scholarship may be applied only toward the Institutional Records Keeping professional training course.
The Audubon Zoo Species Conservation and Management Scholarship was
established by the Audubon Zoo and Zoo Conservation Outreach Group
(ZCOG) to improve records keeping standards in developing country zoos
and aquariums, thereby promoting better animal management practices,
supporting international collection sustainability efforts, and
discouraging illegal wildlife trafficking.
