History:

After World War 2 an association for ornithology started and since 1952 they save money to open a zoo in the city. Allready in 1953 som ducks where bought and realeased in the Westpark, but a zoo could not be opened there. In stead the small forest of Drimborn was regarded as a good space, so the association for animal friends was founded the 8th december 1960. March 1963 the association the got a small area of the Drimborn forest and started working on it in 1964. March 1965 the grounds where expanded and saturday the 22nd october 1966 the zoo was opened with 30 different species. All ready 1969 the zoo had 113 species and more than 100.000 visitors annualy. September 1971 the zoo was expanded once more and 1983 once again to its present size. In 1980 the kids zoo was opened and in 1983 the zooschool as well as the monkey house. In 1990 the zoo sanctuary was opened. 2000 was an enclosure for bees build and the only red grouses in germany where shown. In 2001 the serval, meerkats, squirrel monkeys, the African penguins and the raccoons got each an new enclosure. 2003 casowarrys, wallabies, lynx and prairiedogs got a new enclosure. 2004 a group of coaties arrived and the building of the childrens farm was started and finished in 2006. In 2004 the Oriental small-clawed otter also arrived and where placed next to the raccoons. The otters visited the raccoons daily, so the fence was pulled down and those 2 species since then share the same enclosure. 2007 the riding square was opened and poitou donkeys where acuired. 2009 the zoo got red river hogs and an aviary for ibises and a walk through aviary for budgerigars.
