    Does anyone know the quarantine arrangements between BIAZA zoos? I'm pretty sure my lecturer mentioned that any transfers between BIAZA establishments don't require a quarantine period upon arrival at the new home, but can anyone confirm this for me?

    Had a look online but quarantine is still mentioned although Im not sure if this just applies to quarantine when entering different countries etc? TIA!

    I suppose it is not officialy mandatory, but every zoo can individualy decide whether to quarantine or not; in any case, the quarantine is always recomendable (in duration of at least 30 days with eventual testings) regardless of the source of the zoo animal.
