Year one began with a fantastic kickoff meeting in Raleigh NC at the USDA facility where Zoo Industry Subject Matter Experts met to discuss the components of a successful Secure Zoo Strategy. SME’s were divided into the following working groups (Risk and Assessment, Biosecurity, Protective Measures, Preservation, Visitation, Recovery) and working over several days, formed the initial documents that through many reviews now have become the information found in the Key Components section in the menu!
