Shanghai zoo is one of the best ecological gardens in Shanghai with more than 50 years history. Since the zoo was established it has been host to over 160,000,000 visitors

Shanghai zoo houses more than 6,100 animals, among which are Chinese animals that include the giant panda, golden monkey, South China Tiger, hoopoe, hornbills and bractian camels. Animals from abroad include, the chimpanzee, giraffe, polar bear, kangaroo, gorilla, ring tailedlemur and maned wolf. The zoo is constantly developing and improving the animal enclosures in order to provide better environments for the animals and a pleasurable experience for visitors.

Shanghai Zoo provides areas for amusement and leisure, opportunities for visitors to increase their knowledge of the various animals and combines this with scientific and technical research to help people better understand and protect animals.

The original golf course design has been basically preserved. There are a total of 100,000 trees with nearly 600 species planted in the zoo. The green areas or lawns cover and area of 100,000 square meters. The zoo endeavors to create an ecologically friendly environment for the animals - the 'Swan Lake' with its natural reed clumps and trees providing shade for pelicans, geese, black swans, night herons and other birds, is a perfect example of this.
