Philippine Zoos

Updated on July 23, 2015

Zoos in the Philippines

The First National Zoological Park Conference of the Philippines took place on the 23-24 August 2010. This was a formative event for the new 'PHILZOO's Association', whose membership consists of just 25 large and 10 small collections. Who these members are exactly is a bit of a mystery as I am unable to locate a list anywhere.

The objectives of PHILZOOS are : Promotion of responsible zoological park operations, enhancing awareness of zoological park owners/managers/staff on existing policies and other basic considerations in zoological park establishment and operation.

It was stated at the conference that there are some 2,750 large and small zoos in the Philippines (other sources say 2,000). This quoted figure is not just shocking but unbelievable. It is also somewhat worrying as there is no set standard of care for Philippine zoos and especially so if just 35 zoos attended the conference.

The Philippines is made up of some 7,107 islands and covers a huge area but even so the number of zoos is quite astounding.

Do You Know Of Philippine Zoos Misssing From The Above Lists?

Bearing in mind that some collections do go under two or three names it is just possible that there is some repetition in those listed above. I would though like to add to the list. If there are over 2,000 zoos in the Philippines then I have missed a lot out and would like to include them.

Please give details of missing zoos (and by zoos I mean zoos, bird parks, dolphinariums, aquariums etc) and I will include them in the list above. Thank you.
