Zoos in the Ruhr Metropolis

Written by Garry on


Once again, the Ruhr would not be the Ruhr if it didn’t have more than one zoo. The variety of parks with animals is quite large while some of the zoos across the region offer city dwellers the necessary insights to many lifeforms on our planet.

Much has changed over recent years in an attempt to provide exotic animals in captivity a semblance of their natural environments. Approve or not, programmes in various zoos across the globe have actually aided the preservation of some endangered species.
