About this book

This book has been compiled and written jointly by Anthony Sheridan, European zoo analyst and author of three previous books on this subject, and Dr Alex Rübel, Zürich's highly respected and successful zoo director (1990-2020). It is Sheridan's latest and most comprehensive analysis of the 126 leading zoos and includes a further 11 specialist zoos in Europe. It ranks zoos in terms of animal collection, enclosure quality, visitor attractiveness, education, research, conservation, management, and marketing.

Many examples in these areas enable the interested zoo enthusiast, sceptic, visitor, sponsor, donor, politician, conservationist and all those who work in zoos to obtain information and make comparisons among zoos. Each zoo described is presented. The first experiences with COVID-19 in the zoos are described.

The proceeds from the sale of the book will go to the Gibbon conservation project in Vietnam organised through Stiftung Artenschutz.
