We’re now accredited by the USZA!!!
Great news! We are now an accredited facility of the United States Zoological Association (USZA). There are many associates out there and lots of different views by different organizations and we feel this organization is the best fit for what we do. A little bit about the USZA: The purpose of this organization is to support and unite the commercial zoos, breeders, private owners, and sanctuaries into a networking program to further educate each other and create professionalism within the animal industry. This will give us the credibility we need to work strongly with the lawmakers, to further their education about the exotic and alternative animal owners, and show them we can be responsible and professional.Through conservation, education and outreach we can conserve endangered animals in both captivity and in the wild and help raise awareness of the dangers to wild habitats that may lead to the extinction of some species.
