In addition to providing a platform that assists zoos (and others) to find conservation projects, LINCZ is also a member organization, a cooperative alliance of conservation organisations. The conservation organizations that are members of LINCZ are active in nature and animal species conservation and value the prospect of partnering with like-minded people who are based in zoos. They see zoos as important venues to promote their conservation messages.
Conservation organizations that are members of LINCZ will usually have been recommended by members of the zoo community, generally those who are active in one of the Taxon Advisory Groups (TAGs). These recommendations are commonly based on past experience of partnering with that organisation in which their efficiency, transparency and communication skills have proved to be reliable.
