The colourful history of Dublin Zoo, updated from 2009 as the zoo has made huge strides when it comes to getting across the importance of conservation and state-of-the-art habitats.

The long history of Dublin Zoo was put on record in 2009 for the first time with the publication of Dublin Zoo: an illustrated history. The new edition released this year brings the history of Dublin Zoo to life, from its modest beginnings on a four-hectare plot, to today’s Zoo of 70 hectares and includes a wide range of archive photography, interviews, new material and recent milestones such as the opening of many new world-renowned habitats and education centres.
