High above the city of Zurich is the 27-hectare domain of the largest and most-frequented cultural and educational institution in Switzerland: Zoo Zürich. Explore the rich diversity of this zoo and make a valuable contribution to the conservation of rare animal species.

We support Zoo Zürich because, as an ambassador for people, animals and nature as well as an unparalleled centre for environmental protection, it works tirelessly to conserve resources and optimise its own sustainability.

ewz and Zoo Zürich exhibits

ewz has worked together with Zoo Zürich to create surprising, exciting and interactive zoo exhibits. 

Visit the fascinating exhibition A future for Eurasian otters (in German) to find out more about the renaturation of Eurasian otters, their habitats and the use of waterways for hydropower as well as its impact on flora and fauna.

Explore the exhibition Living with the sun (in German) in the antelope enclosure and discover exciting facts about how the Arabian oryx has adapted to the high temperatures and aridity of its habitat. The exhibition also addresses people’s cooling strategies and how they use the sun in this region.
