SEAZA Association Members are National Zoo Associations from the Southeast Asian Region. Only one National Zoo Association from each Southeast Asian nation should be officially represented in SEAZA. If a specific Southeast Asian country’s situation warrants for more than one zoo association to exist, then those organizations should reach an accord as to which among them would represent the nation in SEAZA. Similarly, if no zoo association exists in a particular Southeast Asian country, then a duly-registered organization or company can act and register as such and represent the nation in SEAZA.
Zoological institutions under SEAZA-recognized National Zoo Associations are not automatic SEAZA Institutional Members unless an institution applies and be accepted as such.
SEAZA Institutional Members are zoological institutions (i.e., zoological gardens, aquariums, wildlife/marine parks, farm/nature resorts, etc.) that are open to the public and are located in Southeast Asia. A Southeast Asian zoological institution intending to become a SEAZA Institutional Member should be, first, a member of the National Zoo Association of that institution’s country. A SEAZA Institutional Member shall be represented by the institution’s President/Chair/Director or CEO, or any other high-level officer/executive as authorized by the institution’s board or upper management.
The SEAZA Institutional Member application form can be downloaded here.
