Zoo Agreements

Some AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums that do not participate in the AZA Reciprocity Program may have individual mutual agreements with other AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums. Contact your local zoo or aquarium to learn more about special discount agreements. Our list of zoos and mutual aquariums follows. Every year, changes are made in terms of reciprocity. As an AZA-accredited institution, the zoo has chosen to grant free or discounted admission to members of AZA-accredited institutions who reciprocate with free or discounted admission to our zoo. If a zoo or aquarium isn`t on our list, there`s no consideration with free or discounted admission. You must have your membership card and photo ID with you to get free admission. The agreements do not include free parking. In addition, most institutions do not honor reciprocity for special events. Please contact another institution with the date you may be able to visit to check mutual policies.
