Our Kirkley Hall Zoological Gardens has achieved full
membership to the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquaria
(BIAZA), a body which shows commitment to animal welfare,
education, research and conservation.
The zoo achieved the membership by completing a mentoring
scheme with members of two BIAZA associated zoo
All areas of the zoological gardens were assessed during a
series of mentor visits including record keeping, welfare of
animals, ethical review process, licensing, diets, education and
health and safety.
This membership places Kirkley Hall Zoological Gardens in a
unique position alongside just two other college collections in the
UK that have BIAZA membership and over 100 other leading zoological
collections in the UK.
