"Who's Who in the Zoo? Zoo and Aquarium All-Hazards Preparedness, Response, and Recovery"

July 28, 2015

This webinar focused on the topic of all-threats/all-hazards emergency planning for wildlife facilities for the purposes of animal welfare/well-being, staff safety, public safety, first responder safety, protection of agriculture, and conservation. This includes "Secure Zoo," a new initiative for managed wildlife facilities modeled after agriculture security programs. The presenter will be Yvonne Nadler, Acting Program Manager, Zoo and Aquarium All Hazards Preparedness, Response and Recovery Center (ZAAHP Fusion Center), created by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). The USDA-funded ZAAHP Fusion Center is a conduit for dissemination of information to the managed wildlife community on the five critical National Preparedness mission areas: prevention, protection, mitigation, response, and recovery.
