A Complete Listing Of All Current & Former Zoos and Animal Collections In Asia & The Middle East

AFGHANISTAN

Kabul Zoological Gardens, KABUL

This 100-acre zoological park use to be quite a nice zoo with quite an admirable collection of species particular to this region of Asia. It had been built on the edge of the Kabul River with help from the zoo in Cologne, Germany.

Of course that was before the ravages of 20-plus years of guerilla warfare and accompaning poverty. Today there are barely 19 species being cared for including a handful of wolves and monkeys.

Particularly poignant is the plight of their lion, Margan. In the early 1990's the lion was injured and left blind in one eye by a grenade thrown by a guerilla whose brother the day before had entered the cage and been attacked and killed by the lion. This creater has a lunch tab of $14 a day, which is most than what many Kabul residents earn in a month.

The animals' welfare is a low priority for Kabul residents right now who are overwelmed with their own troubles. The zoo's nickel entrance fee generates only about $300 a month which will hardly offset its $6,000/month operating expenses. Even the zoo's director has gone unpaid since July.

Beijing Zoological Gardens, BEIJING

In the 18th century, the zoo was known as the Sanbeizi Gardens, supposedly named after the third son of Emperor Kangxi, Prince Cheng Yin. Another explanation is that Sanbeizi refereed to the Qing courtier Fu Kang' an and the Gardens the site of his villa. In fact, as early as the Ming Dynasty, an imperial mansion called the Garden of Happiness and Friendship constructed for Prince Kang stood here, and during the Qing, part of the Sanbeizi Gardens called the Garden of Continuity (Jiyuan) became the private property of an official in the Bureau of Palace Affairs.

In 1906, during the reign of Emperor Guangxu, the park area became an agricultural experimental farm and a zoo. Known as the Garden of Ten Thousand Animals (Wanshengyuan), it opened to the public in 1908.

Under the successive rule of the Northern Warlords, the Japanese and the Kuomintang, the park became increasingly desolate. The only elephant died in 1937, and the Japanese, under the pretext of protecting themselves against air raids, poisoned the remaining lions, tigers and leopards. On the eve of the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949, the park housed only 12 monkeys, two parrots and a blind emu. The park was reopened to the public in 1950, and on April 10, 1955 formally named the Beijing Zoo.

The zoo has developed rapidly and by 1987 it covered an area of over 40,000 square meters. Bears, elephants, pandas, lions, tigers, songbirds, hippopotamuses, rhinoceroses, antelopes and giraffes were brought in the late 1950s, and a gorilla cage, leaf-monkey cage and aquarium house, was opened, containing specimens of over 100 species of reptiles from all over the world, including crocodiles and pythons.

At present, the zoo houses over 7,000 creatures of 600 different species, including the giant panda, red-crowned crane and Pere David's deer-all unique to China-as well as the African giraffe, rhinoceros, chimpanzee and antelope; American continent; wild ox from Europe; and elephant and gibbon from India.

Blue Zoo Aquarium, BEIJING 

Blue Zoo

Blue Zoo Beijing was the first walk-through aquarium established in Beijing, the capital of China. In the year following its grand opening by the Prime Minister of New Zealand in November 1997, more than a million people visited the attraction.

In 1998, Blue Zoo Beijing was formally recognised by the Beijing Municipal Tourism Administration, which named it one of the outstanding new tourist attractions. Constructed beneath a man-made lake adjacent to the Workers' Stadium, the capital's major public sports stadium in the heart of one of the city's most affluent areas, Blue Zoo Beijing features live tropical marine species in a variety of displays.

THE LARGEST AQUARIUM OF ITS TYPE IN ASIA

Blue Zoo Beijing is the largest aquarium of its type in Asia. The main attraction is the central tank holding 3.5 million litres of artificially produced salt water. A complete eco-system has been created in this tank to allow thousands of fish to live in as natural an environment as possible.

Blue Zoo Beijing's underwater community encompasses fish from all tropical levels; in all, the aquarium boasts thousands of ocean and marine estuary creatures, including sharks, rays, eels, coral reef fish, lobsters, sea horses, starfish and many others. New arrivals are held in the quarantine facility to ensure that diseases are contained and effectively treated by Blue Zoo Beijing's skilled curation staff.

Besides the main tank, Blue Zoo Beijing features eighteen different tanks which hold specifically themed displays. Adding to the attraction of the underground aquarium itself, is the daily excitement of watching specialist divers feeding the fish and sharks twice a day. Blue Zoo Beijing's aquarium is a world-class complex featuring the latest in aquarium technology

Sri Chamarajendra Zoological Garden, MYSORE

Mysore Zoo is one of the oldest and most popular zoos in Southern India. Located on the outskirts of Mysore, the zoo is home to a wide range of wild species. The official name for the zoo is Shri Chamarajendra Zoological Gardens, though it is known commonly by its shortened name.

Controversy

The maintenance and upkeep of animals in the zoo has always been under question. The zoo witnessed a series of animal deaths, reportedly due to improper maintenance. On September 4, 2004, an elephant died, reportedly of acute haemorrhagic enteritis and respiratory distress. This was followed by another elephant's death on September 7 with the same illness. It was reported that the illness in elephants were due to poisioning. As a safety measure, the zoo authority reportedly suspended several staff members who were allegedly responsible for the "gruesome killings". Later, the laboratory tests confirmed that the two elephants, named Ganesha and Roopa, had been poisoned. In August 2004, a lion-tail monkey (macaque) was found mysteriously dead. An emu and a tiger were also reported to have died mysteriously.

On October 24, 2004, another elephant, Komala, died with suspicions of poisoning. The elephant was supposed to be sent to Armenia as a goodwill ambassador. That same day, the Chief Minister of Karnataka ordered a probe into the death of Komala.

Vandalur Zoo, VANDALUR

The Vandalur Zoo, also known as the Arignar Anna Zoological Park, in Vandalur, is located about 30 kilometers from the city of Madras.

Founded in 1979, this zoo was preceded by the old Madras Zoo (founded 1855), which was one of the first in India, and the first to hold an All-India Zoo Superintendents Conference (1955, as part of the Centenary celebrations).

By 1975, the city had grown so much, and conditions at the old Madras Zoo were so bad, that a decision was taken to shift the zoo. The Government of Tamil Nadu and its Tamilnadu Forest Department came to the rescue. Thirty Kilometers from the city, 1300 acres (5.2 km²) were set aside for development of the zoo. There is also a Rescue and Rehabilitation centre.

HKZBG, occupies an area of 5.6 hectares was founded in 1871 as a Botanic Garden and renamed in 1975 as Botanical and Zoological Gardens to reflect the increased commitments to zoological exhibits. Construction works of the Garden started in 1860 and the first stage was opened to the public in 1864.


Mr. Charles Ford was the first Superintendent of Gardens, appointed in 1871. Having served as a temporary Government House from 1841 to 1842, the Garden was still called "Bing Tau Fa Yuen" by the Chinese. Bounded by Garden Road, Robinson Road, Glenealy and Upper Albert Road, the Garden was divided into two parts by Albany Road, but linked by a subway. The eastern part of the Garden is known as the Old Garden where a Children's Playground, Aviaries, Jaguar Enclosure, Green House and a Fountain Terrace Garden are found.

Hahotrim Kibbutz Zoo, KIBBUTZ HAHOTRIM 

I, Naomi Gal from Kibbutz Hahotrim, Israel -  has been running a very special little zoo for more then 20 years.
Its main objectives are saving wild animals and rehabilitating people through animal care.
Some of the social welfare projects include:
-    Helping disadvantaged children.
-         Helping people suffering from post - traumatic (war) stress       disorder.
-         Helping jail  inmates towards their reintegration into society.
-         Helping to build and maintain "little-zoos" in jails and hospitals       for mental disturbed people.
-         Helping school drop - outs who have difficulty in adapting to       society.
-         We also cared for wounded animals found in the Northern       part of Israel.
Lately, because of the Kibbutz economic difficulties, we have undergone a privatization process and founded a non-profit organization which must function without the financial backing of the Kibbutz.
We want to keep helping others but because of lack of resources must approach people who care and will appreciate the important work we do.
Some weeks ago we became an Association for aiding the handicapped through animal care( non-profit association!).

We will be glad to host and show our place to
anybody who represents you + it  will be
very grateful if you decide:

to help us to help others !!!
Thank you!

Neomi Gal - Director of the "helping – zoo"

Hamat-Gader Crocodile Farm, Terrarium and Mini Zoo, HAMAT-GADER  

In 1981, the largest crocodile farm in the Middle East was built at Hamat Gader and stocked with 120 alligators, which were brought from Florida. Over the years, various additional species have been brought to the farm, and today the Crocodile Farm includes crocodiles from Africa and caimans from South America. There are approximately 200 crocodiles of various ages at the farm. The mature crocodiles live in an open farm in conditions simulating their natural habitat. Visitors can walk across a bridge and from a safe distance observe the predators wallowing in the water or sunning themselves on the banks. In 1996, two additional species were brought to the Crocodile Farm from India:
The gavial an endangered species that can be found in India, and now in Hamat Gader as well.
The Crocodylus porosus known for its extremely violent nature and notoriety for attacking humans.

In the summer months, visitors can watch the crocodiles being fed.

At the Mini Wildlife Preserve, visitors can observe the tranquil existence of mountain goats, elands, deer, baboons, raccoons, and iguanas, to name but a few species.

A direct and friendly encounter with a variety of animals, such as rabbits, hamsters, turtles, a coatimundi, goat, mountain goat, and deer.

Tisch Family Zoological Gardens, JERUSALEM 

The Jerusalem Biblical Zoo was originally established in 1928 as a tiny little children's zoo on Harav Kook Street in central Jerusalem. The zoo was founded and established by the late Prof. Aharon Shulov, one of the pioneers in the field of zoology at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. In 1941, a somewhat larger zoo was established on Shmuel Hanavi Street in Jerusalem. This one covered an area of 4.5 dunams (0.45 hectares, or just over one acre). In 1947 the zoo was moved to Mt. Scopus, where the Hebrew University had a plot of land set aside for it. As a result of the evident suffering of the animals during and after Israel's War of Independence in 1948, a decision was made to transfer the zoo once again, this time to a new and larger area of 60 dunams (6 hectares, or just under 15 acres) in Givat Komuna, adjacent to the neighbourhood of Romema. The zoo remained here for 41 years, from 1950 to 1991. During this time it gradually developed into a well-known and beloved attraction. The old zoo closed in 1991, and the process of moving to the new location was begun.

The zoo reopened in its current location near the southwestern Jerusalem neighbourhood of Manahat (formerly Malkha) in 1993. It was now The Tisch Family Zoological Gardens in Jerusalem - The Biblical Zoo.
Today, the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo, as it is still unofficially known, stretches across an area of 250 dunams (25 hectares or 62 acres) in a lovely valley surrounded by green hills and new neighbourhoods. The zoo encircles a small lake situated near the main gate. The lake is fed by a series of pools and waterfalls that flow one into the other. Spacious lawns and shady beauty spots surround the lake and pools. The water system is artificial, and relies on recycled water. The zoo is built on two main levels that house most of the animal exhibits. One main, circular route extends the length of both levels and connects most of the sites on the zoo grounds. Additional side paths also connect the two levels, and exhibits are situated along these paths as well.

Our zoological collection centers on two main themes:

The first emphasis is placed on animals mentioned in the Bible. The majority of these animals became locally extinct in the Land of Israel, mostly in the twentieth century. The factors primarily responsible for these extinctions were hunting, habitat destruction, and a feverish pace of construction and development. This group of animals includes species with fascinating histories, creatures like the bears and lions, the Persian fallow deer and Arabian oryx, the cheetah and the Nile crocodile, and many other species that can be found throughout the zoo.

The second emphasis in the zoological collection involves endangered species from around the world. In this group we have, among other species, the Golden lion tamarin, the rarer of the macaws and cockatoos, the ibises, and the Asian elephant.

Most of the animals in the zoo reside in large enclosures that were designed to resemble the natural habitats of the various species. As in any modern zoo today, the staff of the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo devotes a great deal of effort to providing its animals with a maximal amount of living space in a rich, diversified, and stimulating environment.

A few of our animals were confiscated from smugglers, but the vast majority were born in captivity. We wish to emphasize that as a matter of policy, none of the animals in the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo were collected directly from the wild. We firmly believe that the capture and removal of animals from the wild for the purpose of displaying them in captivity is unusually cruel. It also happens to be illegal.

Like all of the world's modern zoos, our zoo is a fully active member of several international bodies, including the World Association of Zoos and Aquaria (WAZA), the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA), and the International Species Inventory System (ISIS).
ISIS provides software that enables zoos to establish and maintain a complete Animal Record Keeping System (ARKS) of all the animals in their collections both current and historical. Also through ISIS and its centralized database, we can access information on millions of animals in zoos around the world. EAZA provides a service for facilitating surplus animal exchanges that allows zoos to mutually enrich their zoological collections.

Many members of our staff belong to organizations such as the American Association of Zookeepers, the Zoo Registrars Association, the American Zoological Association, and both the European and American Associations of Zoological Veterinarians.

The Jerusalem Biblical Zoo is responsible for coordinating a number of projects that involve preserving rare species whose origins are in the Land of Israel and, where possible, returning them to the wild. The ultimate goal is to restore populations of species which have become endangered or locally extinct. The zoo is also conducting a number of research projects aimed at collecting empirical data and anecdotal information on various animals, particularly those that are threatened with extinction. Here again, the main purpose of this knowledge is to provide scientific support for the preservation and breeding programs that involve these species.

Finally, the zoo attaches great importance to its educational and promotional activities. Through these efforts we champion the causes of nature conservation and environmental protection, and enhance public awareness of environmental issues. We attempt to convey our message to specific groups, as well as to the general public and the community at large

Zoological Center Tel Aviv Ramat-Gan, RAMAT GAN  

The Zoological Center Tel Aviv - Ramat Gan opened to the general public in 1974 as an African animal park. In 1981, a modern zoo was established in the middle of the park, populated with animals brought from the former Tel Aviv Zoo, which had closed.

The combined African Park and zoo are popularly known as the "Safari".

The African Park and the zoo within occupy 250 acres and include 1,600 animals of different species: 68 species of mammals, 130 species of fowl, and 25 species of reptiles.

The Safari is the largest animal collection in the Middle East and is unique in the world, because of the large herds of mixed species of African animals that roam the spacious African Park. The zoo contains a variety of animals from around the world.

Outstanding are its breeding herds of both African and Asian elephants, the gorilla and orangutan families, the hippo herd and the pride of lions.

The Safari's educational purpose is to promote the conservation of nature- from the belief that we love what we know, and we preserve what we love.

The Safari participates in 25 international programs for endangered species. It is partner in both breeding and reintroduction programs and in research projects for such animals. The Safari is a member of international zoological organizations and cooperates with research and knowledge transfer with zoos and nature preservation organizations world wide.

I. Meier Segals Garden for Zoological Research, TEL-AVIV  

 

From humble beginnings almost 70 years ago, Tel Aviv University's Zoological Garden has developed into the largest and leading research facility of its kind in Israel.

In 1931, natural sciences teacher Yehoshua Margolin founded the Biological- Pedagogical Institute on Yehuda Halevy Street in Tel Aviv. The aim of the Institute was to train teachers of nature studies for Israel's schools. Underpinning this endeavor was the belief that knowledge of nature is the best way to link people to their land. The Biological-Pedagogical Institute was erected in a place donated for the purpose by the Tel Aviv Municipality: a wooden hut that had formerly served as Tel Aviv's first synagogue. Margolin managed the Institute until his death in 1947.

Joining Margolin in his work was Prof. Heinrich Mendelssohn, who immigrated to Israel in 1933 and earned a doctorate from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. After Margolin's death, Mendelssohn succeeded him as Director of the Institute.

Following the War of Independence in 1948, the Tel Aviv Municipality offered Prof. Mendelssohn the option of another, larger facility to serve as the Institute's home. The Institute moved to Abu Kabir, to a structure originally planned to be used as a hospital.

In 1953 the "University Institute for the Natural Sciences" was established and, in 1956, the Zoological Garden became part of the newly-established Tel Aviv University (TAU). In 1981 the zoo moved to its present location on the university campus in Ramat Aviv.

In 1995 the zoo was rededicated as the I. Meier Segals Garden for Zoological Research, in honor of the late I. Meier Segals of Montreal, a co-founder of the Association of Canadian Friends of TAU. An instrumental figure in gaining the support of Mr. Segals' estate was Prof. Lawrence Bessner, himself a major patron of the facility and the National President of the Canadian Friends as well as a TAU Honorary Fellow. The Garden's main building is dedicated to Prof. Lawrence and his late wife Terry.

The Segals Zoological Garden contains many different species of animals, the majority indigenous to Israel. This wide variety - of about 40 species of mammals, 100 species of birds, and 80 species of reptiles and amphibians - represents the variegated fauna of the country. In addition the zoo houses numerous kinds of fish and insects.

In the 1960’s, Uri Tzon and Avraham Yoffe organized Hai-Bar, a public non-profit organization. Tzon and Yoffe had two objectives: to reintroduce the types of wild animals that had become extinct both in this region and in this country and to bolster populations of endangered species. Later, the Nature Reserves Authority assumed responsibility for the Hai-Bar. In 1964, the area of the Hai-Bar was fenced in (“the open area”) and the Nature Reserves Authority introduced desert birds and ungulates, some of which are mentioned in the Bible.

In the open area of the Hai-Bar, the staff prepares esert animals for their reintroduction to the wild. The selected animals are placed in acclimation pens in the reintroduction area until their release.

Tokyo SeaLife Park, TOKYO 

The first aquarium in Japan was opened at Ueno Zoo in 1882 and there are now more than a hundred aquariums in the country. During the period, the facilites and capacity of aquariums have been enlarged and the purposes of display have been changing from just showcasing various fishes to presenting environments surrounding marine creatures.
Tokyo Sea Life Park (Kasai Rinkai Suizokuen) is not an exception. Its most important aim is reproducing aquatic habitats in Tokyo and in the world. In this light, we installed a huge donut-shaped tank (2,200t), where bluefin tunas swim around freely.

Ueno Zoological Gardens, TOKYO

Established in 1882, Ueno Zoo is the oldest zoo in Japan. It has grown over the years, expanded its area, and been a forerunner in the Japanese zoo world. Located amid the downtown Tokyo, Ueno Zoo not only provides recreation, but also plays an essential role in wildlife conservation and public education. In an effort to breed endangered species, the zoo has completed the "Gorilla Woods" and "Tiger Forests."

In its long history, Ueno Zoo has received numerous animals from abroad. In 1972, the first giant pandas arrived from China to Ueno Zoo. We have been cooperating with Beijing Zoo (China), San Diego Zoo (US), and Chapultepec Zoo (Mexico) for conservation and breeding of wild giant pandas.

The Five-storied Pagoda and the tea ceremony house give the zoo a Japanese touch. The pagoda was built in 1631, rebuilt after destruction by fire, and in 1958 the owner, Kan'ei-ji temple, gave the pagoda to Tokyo Metropolitan Government, who assigned its management to Ueno Zoo. The tea ceremony house was built to entertain Shoguns in 17th century, and it stills stands as a historic structure in the zoo ground.

Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary, SANDAKAN, SABAH

 Some years ago (1994), while embarking on Oil Palm Plantation development near the mangrove swamps of the present sanctuary, the owner of the site came to know of the proboscis monkeys living there. Fascinated, he learned more about the monkeys and their predicament few people in their quest for commercial gain would have paid much attention to the plight of these monkeys in their struggle for survival. However, for this owner, although the 400 plus acres of mangrove forest were initially bought for commercial development, the plan was quickly dropped so that these monkeys could continue to survive there without fear of losing their natural habitat.

Our information about the history of Karachi Zoo is based on the administrative report of 1949 of the corporation of the city of Karachi. Accordingly it was commonly known as Mahatma Gandhi Garden. It was transferred by the government to the muncipalty in the year 1861 on the condition that it shall never be sublet or transferred. The Zoo has an interesting history as it forms a part of the ground where the old East India Companies factory was situated. 1833 as it was marked on a map prepared by commander Charles, who described it as surrounded by trees, giving a look of garden. In 1878, the Municipality after considering various suggestions for improving the Zoo, places it under a trust to be maintained out of public subscription. The present Zoo started in a better way by donation in 1881. in 1953 KMC decided to create the post of full time curator, a qualified veterinary doctor, to keep the animals in good health. Presently, total sanctioned strength of Karachi Zoo is 242 staff including 6 technical staff and the rest skilled or semi skilled workers/staff.

Karachi Zoo has a good Natural Museum Indigenous as well as exotic stuffed animals belonging to different regions of the world have been exhibited in a very good manner. Visitors and science students can study morphological characters of animals from close quarter. Post graduate students can get more information on mammals, birds and reptiles through the technical officials. In 1991-1992 CDGK (former KMC) allocated funds for remodeling of Natural History Museum, which was carried out. Now, the Natural History Museum is being visited by students of secondary schools on regular basis for awareness in biodiversity. Apart from stuffed animals, skins, antlers, horns & feathers etc are also placed on display in the museum. In 1992 the Japanese Princess inaugurated the remodeled Natural History Museum.

Jurong Bird Park


History and Development

 
 

The idea of a bird park to be built in Jurong Town was first conceived in 1968 by Dr Goh Keng Swee, the then Minister for Finance. During a World Bank Meeting in Rio de Janeiro, Dr Goh visited its zoological garden and was impressed with its free-flight aviary.

He sought to see that Jurong would be more than an industrial zone that Singaporeans would have a place where they could escape from urban life, where people could relax with nature. All this Dr Goh saw in the Jurong BirdPark, which would be the first of its kind in Southeast Asia.

 
 

Subsequently, Mr J Toovey, the Zoo Architect from the Zoological Society of London was invited to make preliminary studies of the project and upon his advice, the present site of the Jurong BirdPark, which is situated on the western slope of Jurong Hill (Bukit Perepok) was chosen in December 1968.

While the Park was being built, the Park’s officials urged ambassadors and foreign dignitaries to Singapore to contribute birds for the new park. Soon, birds from all over the world finches, pheasants, herons, mallards, owls, cockatoos began arriving. By opening day, 12 countries, 7 zoos and 40 private donors had contributed birds to the Park.

On 3 January 1971, Jurong BirdPark was opened to the public. It was built at a cost of $3.5 million, excluding land cost.


Plan and Layout

Jurong BirdPark is a 20.2 hectare open-concept park. It is the largest in the Asia Pacific and one of the finest bird parks in the world. Its collection of more than 9,000 birds from 600 species is among the largest in the world. The Park specialises in birds from Southeast Asia and the more exotic and colourful tropical birds.

The Park boasts of the world’s largest walk-in aviary with the tallest man-made waterfall where visitors can enjoy a close-up view of free-flying birds from Africa and South America in a tropical setting. Another walk-in aviary, the Southeast Asian Birds Aviary, showcases the region’s exotic and endangered species of birds. Bird shows, staged at the amphitheatre and the Falconry Arena, are entertaining and educational and have thrilled our visitors from all over the world.

The BirdPark’s exhibits and aviaries are specially designed to closely resemble the natural habitats of the feathered species. Lakes and paddocks are built for display of waterbirds and other large flightless birds such as ostriches, rheas, emus and cassowaries. Besides the bird exhibits, there are also open spaces landscaped with exotic flowering plants such as heliconias and anthuriums to enhance the beauty of the BirdPark.

Nigel's View & Review: Nigel visited it in 1997
 This is the largest zoo in the country , both in size and animal numbers .
 Seoul Grand Park lives up to its name  as being a huge recreational facility , with an amusement park , botanic gardens , racecourse as well as the zoo .
 My guess is that it is approx 140 acres  in size  .
 From the ticket/entry booth , there is a chairlift that takes you up to the top of the park , and then you can walk back to the main entrance .
 
 On first sight , the zoo appears to have been planned very well .

 Unfortunately , that seems to have become a real problem , as the zoo management have used the generous enclosure size to stuff in as many animals as possible !  . As a result the animals have inadequate room for their requirements . There also seems to be a lack of vegetation or hiding holes for the animals -- they are all in the publics gaze at all times .
   The indoor enclosures are also seriously overcrowded , and the air ventilation is very poor to the point of totally inadequate ( read -- the enclosures reak ! )
  A keeper tried to attack an inquisitive zebra with a yard shovel -- the zebra retaliated by charging at the keeper !  I dont know if that was an isolated incident  or not , but the keeper wasnt going to get any sympathy from me .

   This would be a great zoo for Seoul Grand Park , if only the zoo would give away 75% of its animals , and did a better job cleaning out the enclosures !
  There are no shortages  of concession stands , cafes , restaurants , gift shops  ,  etc  for the public use  , and Seoul Grand Park has a station on the subway network .
  There are plenty of animals to see , but I feel that this place has missed the whole plot of what actually makes a good zoo !

John Hargenberg, who initially started the Dehiwala Zoo, belongs to a family engaged in animal circuses. He collected and kept the animals in this premises for trade. Mr. Hargenberg exported wild animals to Europe to his brother Carl Hargenberg who was one of the biggest animal dealer in Europe at that time. To hold the animals before exporting them to Europe he bought 05 acres of land at Dehiwala at the beginning of the century. This became quite popular among the residents of the area. The total area of the collection centre was increased to 11 acres to hold the animals received. Subsequently the centre was taken over by the government in 1936. The extent of the land was increased gradually to present status of 25 acres. (11 ha. Approximately).

In 1991, the preparatory office of the [National Museum of Marine Biology and Aquarium] was formally established, the hard and tough scheming and construction work were then , the opening of the [Waters of Taiwan] was finally finished on February 25, 2000 after numerous efforts and frustrations, we formally stepped toward the infinite field of international marine education and research since then. Under the multiple functional thinking of the museum affairs, the [National Museum of Marine Biology and Aquarium] also approaches the overall promotion of community, entertainment, international and so forth other than the upgrading of the educational, academic and nursery aspects. In July of the same year, the Aquarium Department of the museum was consigned to [Sea View World Co. Ltd.] for professional operation and management after screening. This act, not only initiated the first case of consigning the national social educational agency to outside operation, but also implemented thoroughly the cooperation concept for professional division of labor.

In future, the NMMBA will introduce the [World Waters Pavilion] covering the global waters and ancient ocean with the method of combining the aquarium and all digital images following the openings of the [Waters of Taiwan] and the [Coral Kingdom Pavilion]. All progresses are expected to finish at the end of 2007, by the time, the NMMBA will not be only the best museum with international class, but will also write a most brilliant chapter for the Republic of China in the aspects of marine education, research and display going beyond the century.

Taipei Zoo, TAIPEI 

In 1914, when Taiwan was still under Japanese sovereignty, Mr. Oe, a Japanese, established a private zoological garden in Yuan-shan, on the northern suburb of Taipei City.

The Taipei(Taipei pronouced Tie-bay) zoo was privately established by  over eighty years ago during the Japanese occupation era. The zoo, located in Yuanshan, was purchased by the Taipei Administration of the Japanese colonial government in 1915. After retrocession, the zoo was renovated and opened to the public. In 1970, the Taipei City Government appropriated neighboring playground to the zoo as a children's recreation area. In this form, the zoo covered an area of 5.8 hectares. During its ten years of operation, Taipei Zoo became a popular recreation center for Taipei residents of all ages.

With increased awareness of ecological issues and the introduction of modern wild animal management, the zoo's role began to change. By incorporating both education and entertainment functions, and including an extensive database, the Taipei Zoo developed into something much more than a conventional recreation and leisure spot; in fact, the most important goals of the Taipei Zoo are now in animal conservation and environmental education. The confined space of the Yuanshan site precluded Taipei Zoo from achieving the standards of a modern zoo, so after 13 years of planning, design, and construction, the Yuanshan site was closed on the August 15, 1986, ending 71 years of operation. The new Taipei Zoo, located in Mucha, was opened in the same year, on October 31.

The new zoo has an area of 165 hectares, of which nearly 100 hectares are now fully utilized. It is surrounded by hills covered in secondary forest, providing natural scenic views. It has attracted over 3 million visitors a year since it opened. Of the indoor displays already open are the Education Center, the Butterfly Aviary, and the Nocturnal Animal House. There are also seven outdoor display areas arranged by subject: the Formosan Animal Area, the Children's Zoo, Asian Tropical Rainforest Animal Area, Desert Animal Area, Australian Animal Area, African Animal Area, and Bird World. There is also a picnic area, a nature reserve, and the Adolescent Physical Training Field for children. Currently under construction are the Polar and Temperate Animal Area, the Aquarium, the Reptile House, and the Insect House. As these are completed, the Taipei Zoo will be able to embark on a new page of its history in the 21st century.

Arabia's Wildlife Centre, SHARJAH

By the mid 1990's the Sharjah Government had started recognising the need to implement strong environmental policies, including air and water pollution control, the enforcement of the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES), and the protection of the habitat.

For this purpose Animal Management Consultancy was approached for assistance. One of its first tasks was the construction and establishment of a facility to house the Arabian Leopard Breeding Programme. This led to the opening in May 1998 of the Breeding Centre for Endangered Arabian Wildlife. Not only does this facility breed the locally endangered wildlife, but also serves as a base for research into all the other species of mammal, reptile, freshwater fish, amphibians and invertebrates which are endemic to the Arabian Peninsula.

Recognizing a primary function as being environmental education, the next step for Animal Management Consultancy was to create an educational zoological facility, based on the best designs and current international zoological park trends. The result is the impressive Arabia's Wildlife Centre.

In establishing conservation projects, Breeding Centre has built up strong ties with facilities, institutes, government departments and field researchers, on both a regional and international basis. This cooperation has made it possible for environmental planning and management to be discussed cooperatively, rather than each area of responsibility dealt with on an individual basis. This holistic approach has reaped great benefits for the wildlife and habitats of Arabia, with expertise and resources being shared amongst people with a common goal.
