AZH is a non-profit membership organization
dedicated to the advancement of horticulture in zoos, zoological parks, botanic gardens, and aquariums.
One of the key elements of developing natural habitat exhibits is a holistic approach to the design of exhibits. The zoo horticulturist should be involved in every phase of exhibit design. From the beginning stages of guiding plant selection and assuring that plant needs are met, through to the project’s conclusion and maintenance, the zoo horticulturist is an important part of the design team.
