The WOrlds AQuriums and ZOos - WOAQZO

Welcome to my homepage wich discripe those zoos i've been visiting, though only mentioning those in general with more than 100 species. Only those smaller ones wich are international interessing are also included (as Giveskud in Denmark).

As far as I can see you got the best zoos in the area of the EU, highlightss are zoos like Burgers Bush in the Netherlands and even southern and eastern Europe has become quite good thanx to the EU laws. A night mare in my eyes are the zoos of Russia (though not all of them), some places even Elephants are having 10 sqm in-doors - and no out-door enclosures, and a lot of the Asian zoos look quite bad as well (best known i guess is China, but not nessescarely the worst place). Maybe the worlds worst aquarium might be  the one at Morro Bay in Calinfornia/USA - but in general some of the small zoos in the USA should be renovated


 The link to www.zootierliste.de gives you a map of where the garden ore the aquarium is in Europe, including an (incomplete) species list  

Like the last years especially aquariums will open. In 2018 a grand aquarium wil open in Casablance, Morocco and an even bigger one in Yangon, Myanmar. For the future we also look at Saint Petersburg Zoo, Russia (first section might open in 2019) and Givskud, Denmark (Might open in 2019). Both will be remodeld for mor more than 200.000 million US $. On a much smaller scale Johor Bahru will move to new grounds and open 2021. The biggest project though is Singapore Zoo, where Jurong birdpark will move to Singapore zoo and a rain forest zoo will open as well. The price for the new zoos, renovation of the old 3 zoos and a hotel will be up to 700 million US$. The new bird park all ready should open in 2020 and the rain forest park in 2023.
