At the AZA Annual Conference, September 12-16, in Houston, TX, the Madagascar Biodiversity Partnership was named as the 2010 AZA International Conservation Award winner. This highly competitive competition compares a variety of conservation efforts around the world performed by a variety of different zoos and aquariums.
The Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) names conservation as its highest priority, and recognizes exceptional efforts by AZA Institution, Related Facility, International Facility, or Conservation Partner members toward habitat preservation, species restoration, and support of biodiversity in the wild through its Conservation Award.
A special thanks goes to all those who have supported the effort to become the award-winning Madagascar Biodiversity Partnership!
