In order for conservation activities to achieve their intended outcomes, AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums rely on research and science (Hutchins and Thompson 2008; Association of Zoos and Aquariums 2013b). Finally, education and awareness-raising are essential elements of the culture of AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums (Hutchins and Conway 1995; Patrick et al. 2007), which collectively welcome 180 million guests annually.
