The Zoo and Aquarium All Hazards Preparedness, Response, and Recovery (ZAHP) Fusion Center  was created to serve as a conduit between the emergency management sector and the greater managed wildlife community.  A cooperative agreement between the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and AZA, the ZAHP Fusion Center works with key players in emergency management across the country to connect the managed wildlife community with information on the five critical National Preparedness mission areas: Prevention, Protection, Mitigation, Response, and Recovery.  Learn more by visiting our website at, or contact Ashley Zielinski at to sign up for the ZAHP listserv.
