International Education Network & Sharing

The International Zoo Educators association ( holds is biennial conference in Argentina in October. This will be the first time IZE has met in South America, and means IZE will have met on all the continents (excl Antarctica of course).

I have been directly involved with IZE for 20 years, and for the past 4 years I have been the editor of the IZE Journal. The 2016 edition of the Journal has recently been published and mailed to all IZE members.


The zoo education network is a great community for sharing ideas and best practice and thanks to the assistance of regional representatives of IZE and individuals working in this area, this year’s journal is another support for the profession.

IZE Journal 52 features articles from across the world. (Contents page featured below). The printed copy is mailed globally, whilst past issues are made available to all on the IZE website.
