Our mission is to protect endangered species, educate and support the genetic pool of wild animals that are at risk of extinction in their natural environment. We are transforming into centers supporting biodiversity and scientific research.
Thanks to international cooperation, specialists manage to recreate many species in nature. Active protection allowed us to restore, among others: the Alpine ibex, the bison, the gray seal and Przewalski’s horses.
As part of special breeding programs, animals travel between zoos. This ensures an adequate gene pool and safe reproduction. The descendants of our students end up in natural environments (usually national parks and reserves).
In recent years, the following animals were born at the Łódź zoo: a female red kangaroo, a female red panda, 2 male kudus, a male lemur katta, a female red ruffed lemur, a male African porcupine, a male small mouse deer and 2 male silver hornbills.
Zoos around the world are currently implementing 1,000 species conservation projects in the wild.
