Over a century old, The Perth Zoo is home to nearly 2,000 animals and several hundreds of species. Attracting thousands of visitors every year the Perth Zoo also features a vast botanical collection. If you are staying at Citadines St Georges Perth, one of the finest Perth serviced apartments in the region visit the Perth ZOO and experience an abundant amount of diversity.
When the zoo was first opened in 1898, its objective was to introduce animals from Europe to Australia. Today the animals and plants the zoo maintains have been brought from various parts of the globe. Displaying animals according to their native region, the zoo maintains the rainforests of Asia, Africa, Australia and the Americas. Take an adventurous tour and view rare creatures such as the Nepalese Red Panda, Sumatran Tiger, Rothschild Giraffe and many more.
Engaging in conservation projects to preserve endangered species, the zoo works on wildlife rehabilitation and has various programmes contributing to it, including wildlife veterinary training and education. The zoo also encourages enthusiasts to participate in everyday activities of the staff, so animal lovers can get a firsthand experience in learning how to care. Take your kids to the Perth zoo on a family day out, proactively participate in events and help make the world a better place for our animal friends.
