We’re back in Brazil for our ongoing welfare certification programme with the Brazilian Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZAB) – formerly SZB. Throughout the world, a tried and tested methodology for raising professional standards is the quantification of industrial standards and following this, the assessment against these standards.
Wild Welfare has developed a detailed animal welfare standard and assessment process, and is supporting a number of individual zoos and zoo associations around the world to meet these high standards of animal care and welfare. Being able to effectively understand and monitor the care and welfare of animals in a zoo is critical for keepers, curators and vets alike. Our latest trip Brazil sees us helping AZAB members during two days of welfare auditor training.
