Hsinchu Zoo Picture



Hsinchu Zoo is located in Hsinchu City in north-western Taiwan. The zoo, located in Hsinchu Park, is the oldest and smallest public zoo of Taiwan. The zoo was established in 1936 during the Japanese occupation era. So far, Hsinchu Zoo owns lots of natural resources such as animals, plants and landscape. The Zoo has an area of 5.4 hectares and is preparing to become a modern Zoological Garden.

By incorporating both education and entertainment functions, the Hsinchu Zoo developed into something much more than a conventional recreation and leisure spot; in fact, the most important goals of the Hsinchu Zoo are now in animal conservation and environmental education.

The Zoo has 11 employees that care for over 250 animals distinguished into 70 different species including mammals (herbivores, carnivores, and omnivores), birds, and reptiles. Most of the animals displayed in the zoo are adopted for many different reasons. Some of them are protected species listed from CITES, and others are cherished domestic species of Taiwan.
