Imagine a place where you can come face to face with some of the world’s most incredible predators. A place where you can encounter African Lions, Snow Leopards, African Wild Dogs and unexpected predators such as the Praying Mantis.
Zoos Victoria is committed to ensuring that no Victorian terrestrial verterbrate spieces go extinct on our watch. To meet this goal, we have identified 20 threatened species to protect through the establishment of insurance populations and breeding programs.
