To date, the AZA Conservation Grants Fund has provided $7.7 million in support for 400+ projects worldwide.
AZA – accredited zoos and aquariums are leaders in the protection of threatened and endangered species. Through AZA SAFE: Saving Animals from Extinction the entire AZA-accredited zoo and aquarium community is focusing our conservation science, wildlife expertise, and 195+ million annual visitors on saving species in the wild.
Moxie and AZA are working together to bring the conservation mission to a broader audience through product, promotions and collaborations that deliver on the promise of the AZA’s SAFE program while funneling all funds back to meet the SAFE commitment. Saving Animals From Extinction is the AZA’s key focus in the conservation landscape and Moxie is helping to extend that story.
