History of the Zoological Garden of Rome.
[ads1]”Bioparco” of Rome has a great story. Was founded in 1908 by a group of lenders who founded the “public company to a zoo” withthe aim of creating a place for attraction and entertainment. At that time, the concept of Zoo was different now, and it has created for recreational purposes, but now is the knowledge and science. The first objective of the Zoo is the fun of the people, the beauty of itsanimals. The zoo was created by Carl Hagenbeck in 1911 and in the early years has become one of the largest zoos in the world, surpassing the gardens of Berlin and Paris too.
After the first few years the reputation of the structure began to descend slowly, so the only way to grow has become an extension of the zoo. In 1926 was projected extension of 5 hectares. In 1933, the architect Raffaele De Vico began its work in 1935 and opened a new area of the zoo, and the new main points became the aviary and reptile house. In 1970, the reptile house was closed for the awful situations that it was the restructuring during 9 years and the new structure in 1983. “Bioparco” is now one of Europe’s oldestzoos. The research carried out by zoo still plays an important role, particularly in the study of aspects of life of the animals that are a bit ‘elusive and reserved, making them difficult to observe in natural habitat. A number of different studies are carried out at the Bio-park, all of which are designed to learn more about various aspects of veterinary and eco-ethological needs of the animals housed.
The purpose of this research is to enrich the scientific knowledge that is already available, is to increase the welfare of animals during”Bioparco” and acquire new knowledge that can contribute to the protection of wildlife in danger of extinction.
