At Zoo Duisburg, our focus is on the welfare of the animals. Our knowledge of the animal world is constantly evolving. It is an on-going challenge to offer the animals the best possible environment under optimal conditions. With this goal in mind, we are in a continuous process of development. In order to express these demanding requirements in a comprehensible and transparent way, we have developed a mission statement. This mission statement forms the basis of our daily actions and makes our zoo fit for the future. In addition to animal welfare, our focus is also on the satisfaction of our zoo visitors and on the sustainable experience of a visit to Zoo Duisburg.
We see our responsibility towards the animals entrusted to us and the diversity of nature as the highest maxim of our daily work. Credibility and transparency are guidelines by which we act, both within the company and in public. We protect nature and the environment through cost-saving management and sustainable use of resources. Our work as a team is based on mutual respect and personal responsibility. We strive for a transparent and trusting culture of communication within the company. We create a sustainable experience for our visitors, characterised by the feeling: "I feel good at Zoo Duisburg". We create co-operations with partners in relevant social areas focused on nature and species conservation.
Duisburg is proud of its zoo! Our zoo should "stand out from the others". Special experiences and excellent service make every visit to the zoo an unforgettable adventure. Visitors should feel completely at ease at Zoo Duisburg. "The visitors are our customers": this philosophy should be the mainstay of our efforts to make a visit to the zoo an unforgettably positive experience.
The great past of Zoo Duisburg is a particular commitment. Our zoo is in transition and we are building on this past. Together, we are working on the opportunity to further develop in a sustainable manner. We inspire our visitors with exemplary animal care and sustainable, innovative concepts for education and species conservation. The welfare of the animals entrusted to us is our primary concern. We create optimal conditions for the care of animals. The Zoo feels particularly committed to the protection of biodiversity in natural habitats. With our resources, we actively support species conservation "ex situ" (within the zoo) and "in situ" (in the natural habitat).
