1 May 2006 New PAX TAG Chair Elected

John Gramieri, Mammal Curator at the San Antonio Zoo, has recently been elected chairman of the Pangolin, Aardvark and Xenarthran Taxon Advisory Group (PAX TAG) of the American Zoo and Aquarium Association (AZA). This TAG covers a number of important taxa, each facing unique challenges and deserving of genuine progress. There is a great deal of work as well as many exciting opportunities that will face the members of a new Steering Committee, who will be elected from the Institutional Representatives of interested AZA zoos. AZA's Taxon Advisory Groups serve as committees of expert advisors and provide a forum for discussing husbandry, veterinary, ethical and other issues that apply to entire taxa. In particular, they examine animal management techniques based on scientific studies, help to develop animal care and husbandry guidelines, and establish priorities for management, research and conservation.
