Animals & Habitats

Opened in 1831, Dublin Zoo is one of the world's oldest and most popular zoos. It has been transformed in recent decades into a 28 hectare park of gardens, lakes and wonderful natural habitats for over 400 animals.

Many are rare species and their survival in the wild is under threat so many of our animals are part of international breeding programmes for endangered species.

Dublin Zoo is home to animals from all around the globe.
