Toledo Zoo receives renewed accreditation


The Toledo Zoo has been granted renewed accreditation by the Association of Zoos & Aquariums’ independent accreditation commission.

The zoo underwent a review of standards, including animal care, veterinary programs, conservation, education, and safety. The association requires zoos and aquariums to successfully complete the process every five years to be members of the association.

The zoo has been accredited for more than 35 years. In 1976, it was the 11th zoo in the country to earn accreditation.
