Conditions for the animals

Skånes Djurpark is built according to the needs of the animals. In their large enclosures, the animals can preserve their natural behaviour. At the same time the visitors' interest to witness as much as possible of the animals' lives is taken into consideration. Therefore several species are kept in easily accessible show enclosures during opening hours which offer a good view for the visitors. During non-opening hours larger, private enclosures are opened where the animals can spend their time.

Preservation of endangered species

Skånes Djurpark focuses on the Nordic fauna. The park is part of the European cooperation to preserve endangered species. This work includes, in addition to the keeping of wild animals, the care of endangered domestic species.
