ARAZPA Education Policy and Support Documents has been
developed by the ARAZPA Education Advisory Group to provide
a coordinated approach to education in ARAZPA organisations.
It offers leadership in the formulation of principles,
guidelines and minimum standards for the many different
sectors involved in zoos, parks and aquaria.
The mission statement of the policy clearly identifies
what education in zoos, parks and aquaria is all about and
that is, ‘To provide exemplary learning opportunities
that connect people with nature. These experiences enable
the community to better understand and contribute to a
future where humans live in balance with the natural world’.
The ARAZPA Education Policy and Support Documents will
evolve to meet the changing needs of educational philosophy
and practice in zoos, parks and aquaria.
