Melbourne Zoo Exhibit Displays
  Animals From All Over The World  

Home | Melbourne Zoo | Zoo Exhibits

Over the years animal exhibits at the Zoo have dramatically changed.

Once upon a time zoos were used to exhibit animals in closed in cages and sometimes the areas in which they were displayed left a lot to be desired.

The modern day exhibit is a much more humane way of showing off the world's amazing animal species with great emphasis on a more natural display area. With zoos working to help protect the endangered species with successful captive breeding programs some of the vanishing endangered wildlife numbers are now being protected.

Here at the world class Melbourne Zoo the zoo exhibit displays are managed by professional zoo keepers and staff.
