The PARIS rating system ranks species on their suitability for use in program animal collections. Results from program animal professionals across AZA are analysed so viewers can get a basic idea of how their colleagues feel about particular species with regards for use in program animal collections. Eventually, these results will be available on the AZA website. Until then, PDFs of the results will be posted on this page, free for anyone to download.

Due to the large amount of data involved, the results pages are broken up by taxonomic group. The "Other" group includes amphibians, invertebrates, and fish.
