Why Zoos?

Professionally operated Zoos and Aquaria play a significant role in helping people around the world understand and appreciate wildlife. In the last quarter century animals have become revered in large measure because of the opportunity people have had to experience them in zoological settings like our Park.  Zoos raise and influence environmental awareness amongst the 140 million vistis at EAZA Zoos every year.


For many species, suffering from near-total habitat destruction in the wild, Zoos may be the only hope for their survival.


As a member of EAZA, our Park applies rigorous codes of ethics and professional animal husbandry guidelines. We also actively participate in EAZA’s endangered species programs (EEPs and ESBs).
