The 95th AZA Annual Conference took place as a virtual-only Conference, September 14-18. This was the first time since World War II that an in-person Annual Conference was not held. The virtual AZA Annual Conference brought the zoo and aquarium community together during a time when leaning on and learning from each other is more important than ever.
Registered attendees have access to all session recordings until mid-December. View the virtual Conference agenda to watch recordings!
Committee, Animal Program (TAG/SSP/SAG), and SAFE Meetings took place virtually, September 8-11. View recordings from open, report-out meetings. Paid registration is not required.
