The WOrlds AQuriums and ZOos - WOAQZO

In 2020 the world was hit by corona. Still going strong here in 2022 the laws differ from country to country and sometimes even on city level. Therefor zoos and aquarias open and close depending here on. Most zoos are open, but please check on the zoos or aquariums homepage, before you are heading for it. It might be corona-closed or have limited opening hours. A lot of zoos also require that you reserve a timeslot time or wear a face mask indoors.

Welcome to my homepage which describe those zoo's 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 far as I can see, the best zoo's are in the area of the EU, highlightss are zoo's like Burgers Bush in the Netherlands and even southern and eastern Europe has become quite good thanx to the EU laws. A nightmare 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 nessesarily the worst place). 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 2023 a grand aquarium will open in  Yangon, Myanmar.  Johor Bahru, Malaysia will move to new grounds and open 2025. 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 should open in 2023 and the rain forest park in 2024.
