The Jerusalem Biblical Zoo is a full member of a number of international organizations, including the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA), the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria, (EAZA), and the International Species Information System (ISIS).

Additionally, the Biblical Zoo is one of the partners in the Israeli Zoo Association. The association’s goal is for the zoos in the country to meet global criteria and raise awareness of the importance of modern zoos in preserving and protecting nature.

ISIS provides a sophisticated information management system and various tools that allow zoos to establish and maintain a full report of the animals in the zoo's current and historical collection. The system provides the treatment team with tools for managing the collection, treatment methods, medical history of diseases and injuries, and more. In addition, the system allows access to millions of animals in zoos around the world. ISIS's vision is to create a platform for collaboration and knowledge between zoos, aquariums, and nature conservation organizations from around the world to facilitate the management of the local, regional, and international collections of the various animals.

EAZA - The European Association of Zoos and Aquaria enables its members to exchange endangered animals to enrich the zoological collection, to help the breeding programs of endangered species by various tools, and to maintain a stable and genetically healthy population. The Biblical Zoo participates in a number of endangered species reproductive programs by maintaining and breeding various species. The zoo staff is involved in and leads in a number of breeding programs under the umbrella of the EEP (European Endangered Species Program).

International bodies such as EAZA and WAZA offer various options for courses and advanced training for zoos. The EAZA Academy in Israel provides zoo staff in Israel with professional courses at an international level in Hebrew.

The zoo's veterinary staff is active in international organizations in Europe and the United States for zoo and wildlife veterinarians.
