The Biblical Zoo serves to educate about the importance of preserving the values of nature and ecology among the general population, with special focus on activities for young student and teens. Its goal is to instill awareness and knowledge and to develop future leadership among protectors of nature and caregivers of wildlife.
The zoo, in partnership with local and international organizations, is involved with and facilitates programs to:
rescue endangered species of animals;
breed endangered species;
return animals to the wild;
conduct research with the goal of deepening knowledge and cooperation among nature preservation and environmental organizations in Israel and throughout the world.
The zoo, through the Israel Aquarium, presents the aquatic habitats of Israel, to deepen the knowledge and understanding about what’s permissible and forbidden in the fields of fishing, and protecting the values of marine life, as part of the ecological tapestry which weaves through our lives.
The Biblical Zoo and Israel Aquarium facilitate support programs among diverse communities with an emphasis on animal-assisted therapy.
They serve as a significant tourist site in Jerusalem and are therefore committed to act to the best of their ability to enable a meaningful experience for visitors.
The Biblical Zoo and Israel Aquarium are committed to strict protection of the welfare of the animals in their care.
