Erie, PA -- The Erie Zoo confirms the loss of accreditation by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. While saddened by the news, the zoo team chooses to look at this as a learning opportunity, keeping their focus on providing excellent animal care and conservation education, while working on sustainable growth and advancement. The earliest the zoo can apply for reaccreditation is September of 2022.
