Attica Zoological Park
The Attica Zoological Park was initially founded as a bird park in May 2000, hosting the world’s third largest collection of birds (1,100 birds from 300 different species). Striving to combine entertainment with education, it now offers visitors a unique journey to the five continents, through the lives of more than 1800 animals from 300 species, such as lions, Asian elephants, giraffes, monkeys, bears, penguins, parrots, dolphins and many more, in an area of over 20 hectares.
While zoos are a place for entertainment and relaxation, central to the philosophy of Attica Zoological Park is an effort not only to entertain, but also to educate our visitors. Raising public awareness of the animal kingdom, as well preserving and breeding endangered species - some 30% of the park animals are rare or threatened by extinction - are among our main objectives. Our pursuit is to be, first and foremost, a place of education and conservation.
In this context, the Park hosts educational programmes for students and offers guided tours to school groups. Every year, more than 75,000 students from all over Greece visit the park’s facilities, to see up close our 300 species or to take part in the 15 educational programmes specially designed for Greek schools.
