Potawatomi Zoo AAZK
AAZK stands for American Association of Zoo Keepers and is a nonprofit volunteer organization made up of professional zoo keepers and other interested persons dedicated to professional animal care and conservation. The national AAZK fosters a professional attitude in animal keepers through publications, conferences, and chapter activities at local zoos. As well, the national AAZK and local AAZK chapters hold many fundraising events to support wild animal conservation and promote public awareness and education.
The keepers at Potawatomi Zoo worked with the national AAZK to create our current chapter in 2014. You can often find an AAZK table at special events at the Zoo, and we often have AAZK merchandise available to buy in the gift shop. All proceeds from merchandise we sell goes to animal conservation efforts. We look forward to contributing to animal conservation in the coming months and years.
