Developing Nation Limited Membership

For veterinarians in developing nations around the world

AAZV is expanding its new classification of membership, "Developing Nation Limited Membership” (DNLM). The dues for a Developing Nation Limited Membership are $15 (U.S.) per year. Through a generous donation from the Wildlife Conservation Society, the membership fee is only $7.50 (U.S.) per year for the first 500 members registered.

From the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS)

"To assist all zoological and wildlife veterinarians throughout the world to become members of the American Association of Zoo Veterinarians and to benefit from the organization’s resources, the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) ( will further underwrite the cost of an AAZV Developing Nation Limited Membership at a rate of $7.50 per membership for up to 500 members/year. WCS is a strong supporter of veterinary capacity building in developing nations and it is hoped that this additional support will encourage and facilitate membership in the AAZV by veterinarians from around the world, thus enabling them to provide better health care for zoological and wildlife species."
