Support Zoo Berlin

Zoo Berlin is the oldest zoo in Germany and home to more species than any other zoo in the world. Around 20,000 animals of 1,300 different species (some of them critically endangered) live here in the heart of the German capital. Alongside caring for animals such as apes and elephants, our daily work includes conservation action and tireless efforts to improve the living space of our animals. As we are a charitable organisation, we cannot afford to realise all our goals without financial support. Your donation will help us to protect and preserve the unique diversity of species at Zoo Berlin for future generations.


Climbing Fun for Small Predators

Later this year, our former big cat house will re-open to visitors once again and will offer them breath-taking views onto the inhabitants in their new habitats, as well as a completely new didactic concept.

As enrichment opportunities for our ring-tailed mongooses, as well as the Madagascan narrow-striped mongooses, which are endangered in their native country, the animal keepers would like to install lianas, climbing nets and climbing ropes on which the animals can demonstrate their skills and impress the visitors.

It would be great if we could raise the 4,800 euros needed to purchase these fun and exciting enrichment opportunities.

Face to face with fascinating predators

A pride of lions dose in a sandy hollow on the savannah, tigers skulk in the undergrowth, and leopards perch on lofty branches. We are carrying out extensive renovation of our Predator House. Cages will be replaced with habitats that recall the animals’ homes in the wild, giving visitors a whole new experience of our big cats. We are looking for donations to support this project. Donors who give €1,000 or more can enjoy an exclusive tour of the site.

Panda protection

Zoo Berlin supports the Giant Panda Conservation Fund in China with an annual sum of €920,000. Around 70 percent of that money goes directly towards protecting the giant panda in its natural habitat. Twenty percent goes to the Chengdu Panda Base, helping it conduct research into improving breeding efforts, and the remaining ten percent covers administrative costs in China. Thanks to this conservation work, the number of pandas living in their natural habitat in the mountain forests of China has risen since the latest census. However, the bamboo-loving bears are still under threat.

Donations for the Zoo Berlin

Zoo Berlin relies on your support as a non-profit organisation. Your donations help to fund not only the food supply and the upkeep of our animals, but also the maintenance and structural adaptation of the enclosures in accordance with the latest insights into modern animal management. We have a lot on our agenda at Zoo Berlin for the future – exactly what can be seen in our target and development plan.
