Dear Pokemonhunters, we’d love to extend our biggest thanks to all of you. We saw 15,000 cheerful, happy, sociable and friendly visitors strolling through our park, hunting the beloved Pokemons. Together you donated 12.000 euro for our most endangered animals.
Drum roll: the savanna of Antwerp Zoo is finished. Hoofbeats: the herd of Cape buffaloes has occupied the savanna and already added a baby buffalo to the family. Wing flapping: 250 birds are exploring their new habitat.
Antwerp ZOO and Planckendael introduce a no-kill policy for so-called surplus animals. This agreement was made in co-operation with animal rights organisation GAIA and Flemish minister for animal welfare, Ben Weyts.
Antwerp ZOO’s reef aquarium is now open to the public. And how! Antwerp Mayor Bart De Wever in full diving gear dived into the giant reef aquarium. Antwerp ZOO director Dries Herpoelaert went one step further and jumped in after him, wearing his dress suit and a full-face diving mask.
You can now visit two koalas in Antwerp ZOO, and you will be able to get very close to these gentle marsupials. The whole area encompassing the Flemish Garden and the Melkerij got a facelift and is now the new home of Goonawarra and Guwara.
Antwerp ZOO witnessed a joyfull event last night: the birth of a Malayan tapir. The brand new baby Q weighs 9 kilograms, about 35 times less than its parents. Since the mother and baby’s nursery is accommodated in the large viewing stable, they are already allowed maternity visit.
