As a global association, IZE collaborates with like-minded organizations around the world. Here we recognize a few key partners that share our mission to expand the educational impact of zoos and aquariums worldwide.

World Zoo & Aquarium Association (WAZA)

Together we promote joint communication and behavioural changes activities focusing on conservation education and interpretation as well as behaviour change. IZE provides expertise and guidance on conservation education and communications and WAZA helps amplify the scope of the conservation communications, education, and interpretation initiatives.

The Ocean Project

The Ocean Project coordinates World Ocean Day which is celebrated at many zoos and aquariums around the globe. Other conservation campaigns and resources for conservation educators are also available through The Ocean Project and shared widely throughout the IZE network.
