Taxon Advisory Groups

Taxon Advisory GroupsEnsuring the Survival of WildlifeThe mission of these Association of Zoos and Aquariums programs is to help ensure the survival of selected wildlife species.Established by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) 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.Current Seneca Park Zoo TAG Ambassadors
