Keepers and aquarists should be trained in safe and proper animal husbandry, handling, crating, transferring, and transporting techniques (See AZA accreditation standards 1.5.11, 1.5.12, 1.6.1, 1.6.2, 7.3, 7.5, 7.10, 10.2.1, 11.1.2, 11.2.5, etc.).
Inspections of enclosures (yards, pools, and off-exhibit holding units) should be conducted to identify any unsafe conditions prior to each shift. Keepers and aquarists should be skilled in working with animals, and in proper animal introduction techniques. Animals must be provided with proper food, water, shelter, and social groups. Keepers and aquarists must be aware of any zoonotic disease potential (AZA accreditation standard 11.1.2), in order to provide best possible protection for the living animal population.
