The long history of Dublin Zoo was put on record in 2009 for the first time with the publication of Dublin Zoo: an illustrated history. The new edition released last year brings the history of Dublin Zoo to life, from its modest beginnings on a four-hectare plot, to today’s Zoo of 70 hectares and includes a wide range of archive photography, interviews, new material and recent milestones such as the opening of many new world-renowned habitats and education centres.
