    Can you still see the TAGs on the AZA website? I have been on the site and seem to be going around in circles trying to find the listing of the TAGs. I can't seem to find them anymore? Am I missing something? :confused:

    If you sign up at the friend level you can view the tags and so much more. I read through all of them in 2013 do you have a particular question I might be able to answer?

    Thanks, but I was just trying to view the species lists on the TAGs. I found what I was looking for.

    How do I sign up for membership at a friend level ?
    I am especially interested in accessing things like studbooks and regional collection plans, and species lists

    It's very straight forward. Go here...

    https://ams.aza.org/eweb/DynamicPag...A&WebKey=8a71113a-8eae-420a-a0a6-6f5e9a1994a3

    There are 2 friend options at the bottom of the page. Just a friend membership. And a friends with connect magazine... don't waste your money on that one. It truly is for the insiders working at zoos. 90% of it is ads for exhibit builders, equipment, food and things like that. Not worth it.

    Just add the one you want to your cart and give them your info. Bingo as soon as your credit card clears you have access to the TAGs, studbooks, SSPs, care manuals, and a few other things. I love the studbooks and SSPs.

    Thank you TZFan, I actually tried adding the friend membership to my cart, but once i did that it said

    "We apologize, but your user information appears to have been lost. Please confirm you are logged in and try again."

    What should I do now ? is there perhaps some phone number I should call or somebody I should email ?

    Sounds like you have blocked cookies on your browser.
    But certainly you can call. The AZA number is on the website

    Hope you enjoy your membership. I know I love mine.

    Hey guys, sorry for the late reply, here is an update

    I gave them a call and told them what my problem was, they said that I actually did have a membership and didn't realize it, but I was not logged into the site. I told them I was interested in a friend membership and told them that I wanted to see things like studbooks, collection plans, species survival plans etc but they said that those things were not accessible with a friend membership. I told them that I volunteer at a zoo as well as a natural history museum, so they said I qualify for a professional associate membership which has access to those things, so I then purchased a professional associate membership and now I have access to those documents that interest me, they are interesting and enjoyable reads!
