Unlike the dubious reputation of zoos worldwide, the Zurich Zoo
is refreshingly dedicated to nature conservation, maintaining
ecosystems and protecting animal species, with many projects of
reintroduction into the wild. Offering guided tours and in depth
information tools, the Zurich Zoo does its best to educate the
public. With over 260 different species and 2200 animals, visitors
will get the unique chance to view endangered animal species such
as snow leopards and red pandas. Recreating ecosystems from exotic
Madagascar to the rugged Ethiopian Highlands and housing the
various animals in spacious enclosures, a visit to the diverse
Zurich Zoo is a pleasurable and invigorating excursion. Visit the
website to see feeding times and which new pups have been born.
