Zurich Zoo or Zoologischer Garten is very conservation-conscious, aiming as much to protect animals and sustain biological diversity in the world as to enable we humans to look at the other creatures we share our planet with. The zoo is home to over 250 species including the endangered snow leopard and red panda. Enclosures are spacious and aim to allow the animals to wander relatively freely in environments that echo their natural habitats. There are forest, mountain, aquatic and tropical ecosystems.
Kids can feed sheep, pigs, ponies and goats. The Zoo's slogan is: Those who know animals will protect them.
We enjoyed the trip on Zurich sightseeing and old industrial warehouses.
From the main train station, Hauptbahnhof, catch the number 6 tram, direction Zoo.
