Copenhagen Denmark Copenhagen zoo

 

Copenhagen Zoo is one of the oldest in Europe, founded in 1859, and undoubtedly the most visited. Initially it was very small but rapidly expanded, striving to show as many animals as possible, but later their well-being became an issue, and the number of species had been dropped in favour of more space for each animal. Nowadays the addition of new technological facilities made it one of the best in terms of animal comfort.

Now it has 3,500 animals of 250 species. It is the only zoo outside  of Australia to have Tasmanian devils in captivity. The Zoo functions not only as entertainment centre, but as major science and consultation centre, giving considerable informational assistance and sharing experience with many other European zoos. It contributed to foundation of school services and teaching departments, as well as veterinarian and animal-protecting issues. Copenhagen Zoo is a member of DAZA,  Danish Association of Zoos and Aquaria. The Zoo became a self-governing organization in 1972.

The landmark of the Zoo is a tall watchtower (43.5) metres, giving marvelous view of the entire territory. In 1998 Christian Cold designed a new entrance, an interesting piece opf modern architecture. I recent years more space was occupied to create plausible natural-like surroundings.

The Zoo is a beautiful recreational place in summer, and even during cold grey winters it can be much fun, for it has wonderfully decorated indoor halls, imitating natural conditions. Tropical House accommodates a variety of rare birds and butterflies in their natural surroundings, where they fly free. The setting is complemented with crocodile swamp and rain forest environment. Among the most intriguing and dangerous species boa constrictor and poisonous spiders.

Another highlight is Children's Zoo, housing such animals as goats, cows and rabbits. Bunnyland is a play area for children, where they can pet and feed these cute and cuddly little things. The real hit is the new elephant environment, where animals are held in innovative conditions, occupying vast space.

Exclusive unprecedented IT technology was recently implemented for easier orientation. The visitors can borrow a zoo mobile phone at the entrance, which can be used as electronic guide, providing animal facts, theme tours, SMS note 10 minutes before animal feeding. A handheld zoo PC provides satellite map.
