Audubon Aquarium reaccredited

Posted: Updated:

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The Audubon Nature Institute says the Aquarium of the Americans has been reaccredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.

A news release quotes the inspection team as saying it was impressed by the aquarium's comprehensive planning and preparation for emergencies, staff pride and teamwork, and teacher outreach and workshops.

AZA members must submit a detailed application and be inspected every five years for accreditation.

Inspectors review animal care, veterinary programs, conservation, education, and safety.

The five-year accreditation is made by the association's independent Accreditation Commission.
