    DescriptionNever before have good zoological gardens been so important, in a world of increasing damage to and destruction of biodiversity, both as visitor attractions and as education and conservation centres. Zoos have experienced fundamental changes in the past decades, and this book attempts to provide a snapshot of the current status of the leading zoos in Europe. This book contains unique information and analyses 80 leading zoological gardens in 21 European countries. Each zoo is described on three pages, with a map, and a detailed description of size, attractions, access and much more. Introductory chapters deal with specific aspects of modern zoos, such as conservation, management, and an outlook to 2020. This is a must-have book for all those interested in zoos - enthusiasts, sceptics, visitors, sponsors, zoo owners, politicians, wildlife conservationists and all those working in and for zoos.
