GaiaPark Kerkrade Zoo
GaiaPark is an exciting modern zoo, in which the animals live in spacious natural enclosures. It is also the first zoo with one central theme: the Gaia theory, which views the Earth as a living planet. : The name of the zoo therefore also pays homage to Gaia, the Greek goddess of the Earth, the ancient “Mother Earth” symbol, as well as having a modern vision of life on Earth. One important goal for GaiaPark is the conservation of nature and species. All over the world, zoos work together to protect endangered animals from extinction. There are animal breeding programmes for hundreds of species in Europe alone, one of the more larger organisations is the European Endangered Species Programmes (EEPs). GaiaPark is home to 25 species of animals that fall within an EEP. GaiaPark is a fantastic day out for children and adults alike! At GaiaPark, the 'experience' is the central focus. You will take a trip back in time, as well as a journey to far-off countries with exotic animals like gorillas, giraffes, cheetahs and even a wood with apes running around freely. You can choose from four different expeditions, each with its own exciting adventures and encounters.
