How can I be assured animals are treated humanely?
The Greenville Zoo makes every effort to ensure that all of the physical and psychological needs of each animal are met and/or surpassed. As an AZA accredited institution, the Greenville Zoo must meet the official approval by a group of zoo experts. These experts, called the AZA Accreditation Commission, carefully examine each zoo that applies for AZA membership, including living environments, social groupings, health and nutrition. The AZA also make sure that animals are provided with enrichment, which stimulates each animal's natural behavior and provides variety in their daily routine. The Greenville Zoo prides itself on continuing to maintain these high standards.
