Rome’s zoo, founded in 1908, has undergone a major change in its philosophy since 1998 when it was renamed Bioparco. Since then it has been transformed into an area with a clear educational objective and a strong attention to the conservation of species in captivity. It holds 194 species for a total of 1200 animals, in an area of 17 acres in the heart of Rome.
