Honolulu Zoo Accreditation

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow)-The Honolulu Zoo is developing a comprehensive compliance plan to systematically address various issues that have prevented it from attaining accreditation from the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA).

Last week, the AZA tabled its re-accreditation of the zoo for one year. In addition to noting numerous positive strides taken by the zoo, including its overall physical appearance and a brand new, attractive zoo entrance, the organization raised concerns regarding the filling of vacant personnel positions, repairs and upgrades of animal exhibits, and a lack of sufficient directional signage and educational graphics.
