Description

Zoos accredited by the American Zoo and Aquarium Association (AZA) must abide by a code of ethics restricting animal transfers to other AZA members or to uncredited zoos with the "expertise, records management capabilities, financial stability, and facilities required to properly care" for the animals. But a U.S. News investigation found that even some of the nation's most highly regarded zoos violate those mandates through transfers, sales, and loans of exotic animals to substandard zoos and to private animal breeders and dealers.
