With the opening of the Lewa Savanna, Zoo Zurich successfully implemented the last milestone project in its 2020 master plan. So it's time to plan for the next thirty years.
What is the role of zoos in society? How do we as a zoo contribute to the preservation of nature? How do we design the habitats for our animals? And how do we shape the zoo experience for our visitors?
The Development Plan 2050 provides the answers to these questions.
A world for animals and people
Under the leadership of Zoo Director Severin Dressen, the zoo’s employees have developed their concepts for the zoo of the future. Society is facing major challenges: Loss of biodiversity, environmental degradation and global change. A fundamental shift is needed to restore the environmental balance.
We derive our vision from this mandate for society as a whole: a world for animals and people. This vision will guide our actions as Zoo Zurich over the next few years.
