David Traylor Zoo received a nice surprise earlier this morning.
The Association of Zoos and Aquariums, or AZA for short, proclaimed during their annual meeting that David Traylor Zoo has accreditation for the next five years.
The meeting took place in San Diego, California. Zoo Director Lisa Keith, Education Coordinator Colleen Mitchell, and Emporia Friends of the Zoo Vice-President Rick Mitchell attended the hearing.
The Accreditation Commission made the official announcement for David Traylor Zoo.
The media will obtain an official public service announcment this week after a conference held by the AZA concludes.
A presentation of David Traylor Zoo's accreditation plaque will be announced at a later date.
