Taxon Advisory Group


Established by the American Zoo and Aquarium Association in 1990, TAGs examine the conservation needs of entire taxa, or groups of related species. TAGs also promote cooperation and sharing of information between AZA and other regional and international conservation programs.

Serving as committees of expert advisors, Taxon Advisory Groups assist in the selection of appropriate species for AZA conservation programs and provide a forum for discussing husbandry, veterinary, ethical and other issues that apply to entire taxa.
