WAZA – World Association of Zoos and Aquariums

Captivating new website for WAZA, an international organization dedicated to the care and conservation of animals and their habitats.


The World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA) is the global alliance of regional associations, national federations, zoos and aquariums, dedicated to the care and conservation of animals and their habitats around the world. With over 400 members (and growing), WAZA provides support for species-conservation management and husbandry of animals in human care, while encouraging the highest standards in member institutions.

Being very passionate about animal conversation myself, the project was of great interest to me right from the very beginning – but even more so when I learned that Dr. Jane Goodall, someone I have always admired for her life’s work in animal conservation, would be the keynote speaker at WAZA’s 73rd Annual Conference, where a sneak peek of the new website would be revealed to all the attendees.

The website, which is a little over 40 pages, features a megamenu in order to make it easy for viewers to easily find the information they are looking for, as well as a clean design making the website easy to read and easy to navigate.

It is a pleasure knowing that this website will assist WAZA in increasing their membership count around the world, allowing them to further improve and positively impact the global animal conservation community.

Multimedia / Attention to detail

The pages of the website contain a combination of striking images, engaging videos and unique content layouts, rendering the website truly unique.
