Jim Maddy

President and Chief Executive Officer, Association of Zoos and Aquariums

As an organization—the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA)—which represents accredited zoos and aquariums that annually bring over 180 million visitors up close to many threatened and endangered wildlife species, we are proud to recognize the incredible successes of the Endangered Species Act over the past forty years. However, we remain mindful that the role of AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums is only beginning, as we continue to strive to save wild animals in wild places.
