About this book

Language: English

Due to the rapid increase of nature destruction, zoological gardens are among our most important cultural institutions. On the one hand, they function as an educational institution for nature and species protection. And on the other hand, they are considered a survival raft, a Noah's ark for an increasing number of endangered animal species. Zoos must not only meet the specific needs of the animals they keep. They also must be attractive to visitors, because they can only reach the people who actually visit them. And only attractive facilities attract the necessary attendance, and therewith the necessary entrance fee, without which most zoos would not be able to survive. Against the background of decade-long professional engagement in the zoo business, the topic of zoo design will be treated in the form of a little textbook. Rules that are vital for the creation of attractive zoos and animal exhibits will be defined in a condensed and easy to understand way. This richly illustrated book should be a useful and inspiring read for every zoo employee as well as for everybody who is interested in zoos.
