Abstract
PAAZAB, the African Association of Zoos and Aquaria, is the only organising body for zoos and aquariums in Africa. Over a number of years PAAZAB has been working towards establishing a set of standards for zoos and aquariums. These standards were published as SANS 10397 in 2005. These standards are now being used by the PAAZAB community as the baseline for the assessment of all zoos and aquariums. This paper will present an outline of the standards and will provide an insight into how the standards are being implemented in South Africa.
