Close to 200 delegates from 12 countries gathered in Wellington, New Zealand last week for the Australasian Zoo and Aquarium Association (ZAA) Conference, hosted this year by Wellington Zoo.
The Conference Awards Night provided a chance for the Association to recognise progress, innovation and to celebrate industry excellence at zoos, aquariums and wildlife parks across Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and South Pacific Islands.
Nine awards were presented for four categories, including the Exhibit, Innovation, Education and In-situ Conservation Awards, which highlight some of the incredible contributions of ZAA members to our planet and wildlife.
This year’s submissions were of a very high standard and were judged to a specific set of criteria by a panel of judges across the membership.
The Zoo and Aquarium Association are proud to announce the winners of the 2018 ZAA Awards as follows:
