Amersfoort Zoo is one of the most modern zoos in the world. Its animals are housed in an as natural as possible environment, living in social groups resembling those in the wild as closely as possible. The zoo aims to show the visitor the special value of nature and share appealing facts about animals. Additionally, it conducts research on endangered species and their natural habitat, and participates in several international breeding programmes such as the European Endangered species Programme (EEP) and the European Studbook Programmes (ESB), to conserve endangered animal species.
