In addition, two further award categories will also be open for submissions:

This person could be an emergent leader or significant contributor to BIAZA’s activities. This person must have ten years or less involvement in the zoo or conservation community.
• “Outstanding Achievement” award. This award is open to all categories of BIAZA members. This award is for an extraordinary achievement or outstanding performance throughout the year. Applications can be submitted on behalf of an individual or a team as appropriate.
