Amur Zoo named after V.P. Sysoev

The Far Eastern nature is unique, it is loved and admired. But not everyone can share their impressions about the meeting with the Amur tiger or red wolf. And more often because they do not have the opportunity. Now everyone has a chance to see the inhabitants of the Far Eastern taiga, thanks to the Priamursky Zoological Garden named after V.P. Sysoev.

Not a single animal in Zoological Garden has been caught in the wild for a zoo.

But there are those whose survival in the wild for several reasons is not possible, and the zoo for them turned out to be a kind of "island of salvation". Employees more than once have had to feed babies left without a mother.

More than 100 thousand visitors come to the zoo every year.
