WAZA launches Virtual Zoo
The website of the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA) has expanded by launching a virtual zoo. This zoo offers a collection of 266 animal species, which can be found all over the world. The animals are listed according to ...
taxonomical order, which means that all the monkeys can be found in the primate house and all the fish in the aquarium. This simplifies the search.
Of each animal a picture with its scientific name is available, as well as information concerning its habitat, population and protection. The minimum standard comes in almost all cases from the Austrian zoo society, as it has the most extended legislation in this area.
Several animals are still in quarantine but will soon be added to the collection.
