AZA SAFE: Saving Animals From Extinction focuses the collective expertise within AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums and leverages their massive audiences to save species.
Established in 2019 with initial funding support from the Arthur L. and Elaine V. Johnson Foundation, AZA’s SAFE granting program brings new funds to members for implementing SAFE program plans. Applications are due October 1, 2019.
SAFE species are at risk of extinction and need our help. AZA member institutions are working together alongside their partners to help save these animals.
The AZA community appreciates all of the donors and corporate partners helping the AZA community save animals from extinction.
