Zoo Pomerode, Pomerode

#1 of 22 in Things to do in Pomerode
Visit Zoo Pomerode, the first zoo established in southern Brazil. The zoo has about 3.5 hectares (8.6 acres) of developed space with another area double that size earmarked for future expansions. This fairly small zoo has a lot packed into it, totaling more than 1,100 animals representing more than 220 different species. Many of the species housed there are at risk of extinction in the wild so the zoo focuses on the conservation and reproduction of such species. Their environmental education program aims to raise awareness and educate children since 2002. Be sure to visit the birds, with some of them even flying overhead, and the entertaining monkeys. The zoo includes a parking lot, cafeteria with drinks and snacks, a visitor center, a shop, and an environmental education center where you can attend lectures and group activites.

    Enjoy the Zoo site search ZooPomerode Pomerode Zoo Pomerode was founded in 1932, being the first Zoo in the southern region of Brazil. The Zoo Pomerode started your squad with pets that were left in a pond at the back of the House of Mr. Hermann Weege, a great local entrepreneur. With the permanence of domestic animals and the availability of food, animals native to the region of Vale do Itajaí were attracted to the site. Thus was born the idea to found the Zoo, being the first private initiative of this kind in Brazil. The Zoo of Pomerode is very organized and with a diverse fauna, is an excellent choice for adults and children. I think it could use a little arrows stating, the paths we should follow, the best route for optimization of time.

    Place clean and organized. The animals are clearly well treated. And you can look at the bug closely ... looked a tiger there is 1 meter away ... and stroll in nurseries, couldn't touch the birds ... it's beautiful!
