Zoos and Animal Parks

in and out of Holland

******Dierenpark Amersfoort (Holland)******

Amersfoort Zoo

Dierenpark Amersfoort is the zoo is in our city of Amersfoort so, naturally, I am a frequent visitor. I've seen new babies grow, missed animals that have died and look forward to new changes every time I visit. I hope you enjoy the photos of the many interesting sites from this zoo.

In June, 2005 the second set of twin tigers were born at the zoo. The first set were white tigers which was is wonderful news as white tigers have very little chance of surviving in the wild now.

******Apenhuel (Apeldoorn, Holland)******

Apenhuel is a monkey park located in Apeldoorn. Here you get a chance to watch the little Spider Monkeys romp and play all around you. Apenhuel is a large and delightful park with many types of primates. A must for a true animal lover.


******Artis Zoo (Amsterdam, Holland)******

Artis Zoo originated in the late 1800's and has kept much of the early Victorian atmosphere with gardens and monuments throughout. On the grounds you can find an African Savannah, a Planetarium, Museums and an Aquarium. As with many of the zoos, it is difficult to take it in all in one day. Highlights of our visits there will be on these pages.

******Ouwehands Dierenpark (Rennen, Holland)******


Ouwehands Dierenpark. Every zoo has conservation projects but the one I saw at this one is outstanding. In addition to all of the animals normally at a zoo, they take in Brown Bears from all over the world that have been injured or abused in circuses, etc. At Ouwehands they are free from pain, live in a huge wooded enclosure and are treated with the respect that they deserve. Each bear has a plaque along the walkway telling his/her name and history.

******Antwerp Zoo (Belgium)******

The Antwerp Zooin Belgium is one of the oldest and largest zoos in the world. It was founded in 1843 and has continued to grow and improve ever since. The gardens, sculptures and buildings give the feel of being in a museum rather than a zoo. Their main focus, however, is the protection and breeding of endangered and rare animals.
