Oakland Zoo recognized as "gold standard" in zoological profession

For the 36th year in a row, Oakland Zoo has received accreditation from The Association of Zoos and Aquariums, which is considered the world "gold standard" for zoological facilities. A team from the AZA recently reviewed all of Oakland Zoo's operations including animal welfare, safety and security, veterinary care and conservation efforts. This accreditation renewal process must happen every 5 years to remain up to date and comes as the Oakland Zoo begins its 101st year in operation. KTVU's Alex Savidge discusses the achievement with Oakland Zoo CEO Nik Dehejia.
